After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC President Dana White awarded Brad Pickett (Pictured), Mike Easton, Reza Madadi, Conor McGregor each an additional $60,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FUEL TV: Mousasi vs. Latifi.”
Pickett and Easton took home ‘Fight of the Night’ honors for their back-and-forth shootout. Pickett also scored a split decision victory.
Reza overcame his 3-to-1 underdog status to upset Michael Johnson. Reza pocketed ‘Submission of the Night’ for his anaconda choke.
Many expected the grudge match between McGregor and Marcus Brimage to win FOTN, but McGregor killed those prospects with his quick thrashing of Brimage. McGregor left Sweden with ‘Knockout of the Night’ for his efforts.
UFC on FUEL TV 9 took place inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm.
