UFC on FX 8 Post-Fight Bonus Report: Belfort, Souza, Martins, Larsen Take Home $50,000

May 18, 2013 8:53 pm by Brad Gustafson

Vitor Belfort’s beautifully placed spinning back kick KO over Luke Rockhold earned “The Phenom” Knockout of the Night honors. This is the second knockout victory by head kick in a row for Vitor, and it sent the Brazilian crowd into an absolute frenzy.

Ronaldo Souza earned Submission of the Night honors with an impressive arm-triangle choke in the first round against late replacement Chris Camozzi. He will likely get a top contender after such a phenomenal debut in the Octagon.

Fight of the Night honors went to Lucas Martins and Jeremy Larsen for their heated back and forth battle on the UFC on FX 8 preliminary card. After a close first two rounds, Martins eventually landed a brutal punch square on Larsen’s face sending him to the canvas.

Each fighter will pocket an additional $50,000 in bonus money. UFC on FX 8 took place at the Arena Jaragua in Jaragua Do Sul, Santa Catarina, Brazil.
