UFC On FX: Benavidez v Urushitani

UFC on FX 2 went down last night from Sydney, Australia’s Allphones Arena. In the main event Martin Kampmann took a page out of the book of Tim Boetsch and stole victory from Thiago Alves with a last minute guillotine choke to force Alves to tap and secure victory in the third round.

In addition to the main event, Joseph Benavidez advanced in the flyweight tournament as did Demetrious Johnson (well, this was actually later announced a draw).

For their part in the night’s action it was Benavidez who too home “Knockout of the Night”, Martin Kampmann who took home “Submission of the Night” and the first ever flyweight bout in UFC history between Demetrious Johnson and Ian McCall took home “Fight of the Night” honors.

Each Bonus recipient was paid an additional $50,000 by the UFC for their efforts.
