Stefan Struve, Anthony Johnson, Matt Wiman, and Mac Danzig each earned $65,000 bonuses for their performances at Saturday night’s UFC on Versus 6 event in Washington, D.C., the UFC announced at the UFC on Versus 6 post-fight press conference.
“Fight of the Night” went to the opening bout of the main card on Versus, which saw Matt Wiman rematch Mac Danzig. The two lightweights kicked off the card with a great back-and-forth battle that Wiman would win in a close unanimous decision.
“Knockout of the Night” went to Anthony Johnson, who defeated Charlie Brenneman via head kick in the first round. While the stoppage may be deemed controversial, Johnson was easily handling “The Spaniard” from the opening bell. Johnson delivered a left head kick to Brenneman, as Brenneman was leaning against the cage attempting to back away on his feet. Johnson knocked Brenneman down with the kick, and while he landed on his elbows, referee Mario Yamasaki had seen enough and stopped the fight.
“Submission of the Night” went to Stefan Struve with his triangle choke of Pat Barry. The Dutchman had to work for the triangle, after he was moving around well on his back. Barry attempted to escape with a last hurrah, lifting the 6’11 Struve up and slamming him to the mat. Unfortunately for Barry, Struve was able to hold on to the choke, and pulled his arm further while Barry slid into the choke even more. Barry tapped out seconds later.
