UFC on Fuel TV 10 bonuses and attendance
June 9, 2013
MMA Junkie reports that UFC on Fuel TV 10 bonuses were $50,000 each. Erick Silva, Thiago Silva and Rafael Calvalcante received the honors.
Silva won for Submission of the Night in disposing of Jason High.
Thiago Silva and Calvalcante won for a one round slugfest which saw Silva outlasting Calvalcante. TSilva was awarded the KO of the Night.
In addition, MMA Junkie reports that the attendance at the event was 6,286 with no reported gate. It was the lowest attended Brazilian event since the UFC returned to the country in 2011.
There were many submissions to choose from last night and Silva’s was a good candidate for the bonus. Fabricio Werdum’s armbar of Big Nog could also have been chosen. Thiago Silva’s double bonus comes after a suspension. Still, his celebration of telling the crowd to “Shhh, he’s sleeping” after knocking out Calvalcante was priceless. Although the attendance was low for this event, it was likely expected.
