The UFC took to the HP Pavilion in San Jose, California tonight for UFC on FOX 7. Zuffa’s invasion of Strikeforce’s old home saw the unofficial UFC vs. Strikeforce bill present several surprises as the latter half came up big in the bonus bouts.
Taking home the “Knockout of The Night” bonus was the duo of Yoel Romero and Josh Thomson. Both fighters earned KO stoppages over their opponents, with Romero landing a flying knee on Clifford Starks, while the former Strikeforce Lightweight Champion became the first to TKO Nate Diaz inside the Octagon.
The”Fight of The Night” bonus went to the welterweight pairing of Matt Brown and Jordan Mein, who threw everything they had at one another. While both men found each other in dire straights in the first period, it was “The Immortal” that would come out on top, pounding out the prospect in the second stanza.
