After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Renan Barao and Stanislav Nedkov each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FUEL TV: Barao vs. McDonald.” Tom Watson (Pictured) double-dipped and scored two bonus.   There was only one TKO and submission this evening, so there was no mystery who took home those paychecks. Jimi Manuwa’s doctor’s stoppage over Cyrille Diabate doesn’t count. Watson earned ‘Knockout of the Night’ by teaching Nedkov a lesson in clinch work. He dropped Nedkov after a vicious barrage of knees and punches in the 2ndRound of their shootout. The trip to London wasn’t a complete wash for Nedkov, he and Watson took home ‘Fight of the Night’ honors for their thriller. After a back-and-forth battle with Michael McDonald in the show’s featured attraction, Barao slapped on an arm-triangle choke in the 4thRound to retain his interim bantamweight title and win ‘Submission of the Night.’ UFC on FUEL TV 7 took place inside Wembley Arena in England. Fight of the Night: Tom Watson and Stanislav Nedkov ($50,000/each) Submission of the Night: Renan Barao ($50,000) Knockout of the Night: Tom Watson ($50,000)
