The UFC's first event in Sweden has just come to a close, and what a night of fight it was!
The Swedish fans were treated to a finish-heavy card, with just four of 12 fights going the distance.
Fighters have learned well by now that if they put on an exciting fight for the fans, they could leave with more money at the end of the night—and tonight is no exception.
Let's get down to it. Here are the bonuses for UFC on Fuel TV 2:
Submission of the night: John Macguire
Macguire takes home submission of the night, and rightfully so. He hit a beautiful far-side armbar to tap Damarques Johnson.
It was similar to the fashion in which Matt Hughes once defeated Georges St-Pierre, as Johnson over-comitted to a kimura and Macguire was able to exploit this mistake and win the fight.
Knockout of the night: Siyar Bahadurzada
Bahadurzada made a big statement in the welterweight division this evening, becoming the first man to ever finish Paulo Thiago.
Thiago was charging forward and Bahadurzada used that momentum to his advantage, landing a beautiful counter punch and putting his opponent to sleep.
Fight of the Night: Brad Pickett vs. Damacio Page
Pickett and Page will both leave Sweden with an extra $50k as a reward for the two-round war they put on for the fans.
It was a fast-paced fight, with both fighters scoring takedowns and landing some big shots.
In the end, Pickett proved to be the better fighter, rocking Page on the feet and eventually sinking in a rear-naked choke and walking away with a submission victory.
