Wineland, Jorgensen, Pyle and Silva Earn $40k OTN Bonuses | UFC News

By Jonathan Kirschner

UFC officials announced that four men would be taking home the additional “Of the Night” bonuses at “UFC on FX 3: McCall vs. Johnson”. Eddie Wineland, Scott Jorgensen, Erick Silva and Mike Pyle all earned an additional $40,000 for their respective performances.

Fight of the Night: Eddie Wineland vs. Scott Jorgensen
Knockout of the Night: Mike Pyle
Submission of the Night: Erick Silva

Mike Pyle earned the “Knockout of the Night” bonus after after he sent Josh Neer crashing face first into the mat with only four seconds remaining in the first round. Pyle handed Neer his first knockout loss in over five years.

Throughout his two previous fights, Erick Silva sent a message to his weight-class that he is a dangerous striker. Tonight, he showed diversity and proved to his opponents that they need to be worried by his ground skills as well when he earned “Submission of the Night” honors. Silva submitted Charlie Brenneman with a rear naked choke towards the end of the first round.

“Fight of the Night” went to the very first fight on the main-card as Scott Jorgensen and Eddie Wineland left it all in the cage. The first round was a back-and-forth affair that saw Jorgensen get dropped three minutes into the fight, but he showed resiliency and made it back to his feet to make it to the second round. Jorgensen gained momentum in the second after he landed a nice right knee that bloodied Wineland, but ultimately got knocked out with a right-cross.

  1. harry palms says:

    good free fights

  2. Roy G Biv says:

    Silva vs Hendricks it would be a tough fight for Silva but I could see him winning the fight. Then Condit vs Kampmann since Condit want’s to fight him anyways.

  3. Zack says:

    Condit needs to fight someone. I don’t know how they can let him just sit and wait. He’s prolly been paid off by Gsp too wait and then lose so Gsp can take 2 more years off and keep his belt. I say strip both those pussys of their belt and let Hendricks and kampmann fight

  4. Donnybrook says:

    Silva vs Kos next.

  5. Dee says:

    Brenneman what do you think about Silva’s ground game now?

  6. WrestlingRules says:

    I thought Brenneman was winning that round until he got chocked out. He dictated the pace and pressure and Silva was backing up, and sprawling until the end. I didn’t see it but did Brenneman get tagged or kneed in the face before he went to the ground? He just seemed to turtle on his knees and nor move and when Silva got on his back it was a high mount and Brenneman looked like he could have easily bucked him off or backed out?? Also did you see that cheater move Silva did when Brenneman was about to throw him to the ground and he grabbed the fence? Also, was it me or did Silva look gigantic compared to Brenneman?
