Junie Browning, Dave Kaplan, Anthony Johnson, and Kryzystof Soszynski each took home $25,000 “Fight Night” bonuses for their performances last night at The Ultimate Fighter 8 Finale.
Lightweights Junie Browning and Dave Kaplan were surprisingly awarded “Fight of the Night” for their lopsided main card opener that saw Browning display superior striking, picking apart Kaplan on the feet for the majority of the first round before finishing Kaplan off on the ground in the second with an armbar.
“Knockout of the Night” honors went to welterweight Anthony Johnson, who avenged his controversial July loss to Kevin Burns with a third-round highlight-reel head kick knockout of Burns, which followed an exciting first two rounds of action.
“Submission of the Night” was awarded to light heavyweight Krzystof Soszynski, who displayed that he possess more than just superior striking and power with a second-round shoulder-tearing kimura submission of Shane Primm on the evening’s preliminary card.
