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

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.

    viscous KO with a Spinning Heel Kick at that?Well earned Vitor!

  2. 757 says:

    Definitely an awesome kick. Congrats

    How about some controversy everyone? If you have access to that kick on video then have a REALLY careful look at it. I have never made accusations of a fix so I really don’t know if his means anything but…two things I observed look kinda odd. It started when I thought…how could Rockford not have avoided that kick? So I watch the slow mo version from behind Vitor facing Rock and my first potential “tell” is that Rockhold closes his eyes to the kick well before it arrives and does not raise his hand in defence. OK that one isn’t that big a deal and could be argued away. The next one was more interesting…watch the lead up seconds before Vitor begins his kick -Rockhold actually nods to Vitor as if to say..ok I’m ready, its time. Its subtle but it is definitely there. Could mean something else but it made me smile. As to why they would agree to do this I’ll let you folks argue about it.

      I think your on to something field operative @skinnyvinny aka Jason Bourne. that’s some affirmative intel on a fixed fight – were sending an assassin to assist you in cleaning this mess up. stand by. lol

      …& Rockhold does defend, but for a left hook. by the time he realizes it’s a spinning heel kick he’s on the canvas. in slow motion you can see every little eye flutter (ball scratch) & make up all kinds of bullshit. In real-time that was lightning fast, & Luke got ktfo.

      funny i saw that nod to

  4. 757 says:

    Yeah sure everyone loves to intentionally get kicked in the face by a professional mixed martial artist, or take a chance with about 100 different cameras at all different angles filming it take a chance at a fake hit. Please idiot leave the site and never come back. You should never make another post again. What a dumb fuck

  5. 123 says:

    Belforts kicks are sick, the way he spun around & landed those follow up punches that knocked him out looked amazing.

  6. KIDD433 says:

    If someone is going to fix a fight,the easiest way to fix a MMA fight would be setting up a submission,Not a spinning heel kick and risking a concussion.What a jack ass

  7. pasty pasta says:

    For the amount of money that was probably involved in the fix job, you would not as a professionally trained person absorb 1 kick in the head if you were prepared for it? He absorbed the kick and few punches, acted knocked out and got who knows how many millions for it. And theres the judges stealing the clear win from Evan Dunham too. Great, lets give brazillians all the wins since its ufc brazil, and lets make the last match super spectacular too. So yea, who would not get absorbing light kick in the head for probably millions in sum? I would. You would not? So think again, “jack ass”.
