Both men landed some punishing shots during the bout, and both were sent to the deck during the epic fight. In the end, however, Bisping earned the UD win. After the card the promotion announced that the two had earned “Fight of the Night” honors (and $50K each).
The “Performance of the Night” bonuses went to Scott Askham and Teemu Packalen.
Packalen took out Thibault Gouti with a rear-naked-choke just 24 seconds in, and Askham blasted Chris Dempsey with a fight ending, head kick in round one.
The card was hosted by London’s 02 Arena.
