Bahadurzada, Maguire, Pickett & Page Take Home $50K Fight Night Bonuses
The UFC’s return to action has finally come and it is now over.
UFC on FUEL TV 2 took place today from Stockholm, Sweden’s Ericsson Globe Arena. In the main event it was The Swede who was able to secure victory over the Brazilian with a masterful display of footwork and striking to earn a unanimous decision victory.
Pickett and Damacio Page were awarded Fight of the Night for their fast-paced brawl. After trading strikes for much of the first two rounds, Pickett landed a right hand that staggered Page. From there, Pickett was able to sink in hi hooks, and force Page to tap from a rear naked choke.
Bahadurzada earned Knockout of the Night for his one-punch finish of veteran Paulo Thiago. The newcomer impressed in his UFC® debut, landing an uppercut on Thiago’s chin that sent the Brazilian crashing to the canvas.
Submission of the Night went to Maguire for his slick tapout of TUF vet DaMarques Johnson. As Johnson attempted to lock in a kimura, Maguire deftly transitioned to an armbar, forcing Johnson to quickly tap.
