UFC on FUEL TV 10 Post-Fight Presser and Bonus Recap

Read below to find out who took home UFC on FUEL TV 10 Fight Night and TUF Brasil 2 bonuses.
It was a finisher's row in Fortaleza as UFC on FUEL TV 10 winners Fabricio Werdum, Leonardo Santos, Thiago Silva, and Erick Silva followed up their submission and TKO wins by attending the post-fight press conference. TUF Brasil finalist William "Patolino" Macario also attended. The press conference was hosted by Marshall Zelaznik, the UFC's managing director of international development.

Fighters surnamed Silva swept the post-fight bonuses. After dispatching former Strikeforce champion Rafael "Feijao" Cavalcante in the first round, light heavyweight Thiago Silva took home $100,000 in double bonuses for Knockout of the Night and Fight of the Night.

Feijao received $50,000, as did welterweight prospect Erick Silva, who beat out seven other eligible fighters on the card to earn Submission of the Night. Silva needed only 71 seconds to tap Jason High with an armbar cranked from an inverted triangle.

Zelaznik also announced the season bonuses for TUF Brasil 2. Luiz Dutra won Submission of the Season, while evenutal finalist Santiago Ponzinibbio won Knockout of the Season for his early finish of Marcio Santos, plus Fight of the Night for his semi-final bout against eventual season winner Leonardo Santos. (Although Ponzinibbio won the fight, he was injured and replaced at the Finale by Santos.) Each bonus was worth $25,000.
