Cung Le and Tony Fryklund at Strikeforcs/ Elite XC

The Ultimate Fighting Championship debuted in China on Saturday with UFC on Fuel TV 6: Franklin vs. Le. The night’s main event produced a stunning finish and led the UFC on Fuel TV 6 fighter bonuses, which netted the winners $40,000 each.

Rich Franklin and Cung Le spent the opening moments trying to find their range, but as soon Cung Le found his, it was all over.

Little more than two minutes into the first round, Franklin threw a left kick that Cung Le countered with impeccable timing, crushing Franklin’s jaw. The lights immediately went out, Franklin’s body went limp, and he crashed face first to the canvas.

Cung Le not only got the victory, but also the UFC on Fuel TV 6 Knockout of the Night.

Submission of the Night was an easy choice. Just like Cung Le’s knockout being the sole finish of its kind on the night, Thiago Silva’s arm-triangle finish of Stanislov Nedkov was the sole submission finish.

Silva was being pushed around through the opening two rounds. He tried to fight Nedkov off of him, trying to punch and kick his way out, but found it difficult.

Nedkov seemed to hit a wall in round three, however, and Silva immediately took advantage, putting him on the mat and deftly working for an arm-triangle choke for the tap and the Submission of the Night.

Many people expected fireworks out of former Pride champion Takanori Gomi and former Ultimate Fighter winner Mac Danzig, and the two lived up to expectations. Although they didn’t provide for an exciting finish, they battled toe-to-toe for all three round, the momentum swinging back and forth like a pendulum.

Gomi took the split decision in the end, but each man went home with an extra $40,000 for earning Fight of the Night honors.

The UFC handed out disclosed UFC on Fuel TV 6 post-fight bonuses totaling $160,000.
