UFC on FUEL TV Post-Fight Presser Recap

Read below to find out who was awarded Fight Night bonuses at UFC® on FUEL TV...

Six fighters joined UFC President Dana White at the UFC on FX post-fight press conference: Alexander Gustafsson, Thiago Silva, Siyar Bahadurzada, Reza Madadi, Brad Pickett, and John Maguire.

Pickett and Damacio Page were awarded Fight of the Night for their fast-paced brawl. After trading strikes for much of the first two rounds, Pickett landed a right hand that staggered Page. From there, Pickett was able to sink in hi hooks, and force Page to tap from a rear naked choke.

Bahadurzada earned Knockout of the Night for his one-punch finish of veteran Paulo  Thiago. The newcomer impressed in his UFC® debut, landing an uppercut on Thiago's chin that sent the Brazilian crashing to the canvas.

Submission of the Night went to Maguire for his slick tapout of TUF vet DaMarques Johnson. As Johnson attempted to lock in a kimura, Maguire deftly transitioned to an armbar, forcing Johnson to quickly tap.

All bonused fighters received $50,000.
