Sotiropoulos, a rising lightweight and Australian native, upset the former lightweight challenger Stevenson in a technical battle contested primarily on the canvas. Though Sotiropouslos outmatched Stevenson en route to a unanimous decision, the exciting bout earned the pair “Fight of the Night” honors.
Velasquez scored “Knockout of the Night” by dominating former UFC and PRIDE champion Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, before knocking him down halfway through the opening round and finishing him with punches on the ground.
Lytle earned “Submission of the Night” by default after securing the only sub on the card, but was still deserving of the honor, as his swift kneebar on the UFC 110 preliminary card left Brian Foster writhing in pain with a damaged knee.
