After a night of thrilling MMA action, UFC President Dana White awarded Matt Brown (pictured), Jordan Mein, Yoel Romero and Josh Thomson each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FOX: Henderson vs. Melendez.” Brown and Mein picked up “Fight of the Night” for their back-and-forth battle. Brown ended things in the second round of their shootout by posting a TKO victory. Romero and Thomson each won “Knockout of the Night.” Romero scored his bonus with a vicious flying knee on Clifford Starks, whereas Thomson pocketed his courtesy of a thunderous head kick on Nate Diaz. There were no submission on the card, so obviously no “Submission of the Night” check was issued. UFC on FOX 7 took place inside HP Pavilion in San Jose, California. Fight of the Night: Matt Brown and Jordan Mein ($50,000/each) Knockout of the Night: Yoel Romero and Josh Thomson ($50,000/each)
