Mike Easton put on the fight of the night and unfortunately didn't get awarded his prize money. He did get a lot of attention, though, and he can parlay it into a bigger fight for himself.
The only problem is that he has only fought twice for the UFC and both fights were against less-than-impressive opposition. Before he can get himself into the bigger fights at bantamweight, he is going to need to win against a few solid names so people get to know him.
Easton may have a lot of promise, but before he can challenge top fighters and champions, he has to earn his way.
If he keeps fighting the way he did on Friday, it won't take long.
