UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar ‘Fight Night’ Winners Pocket $50,000

Following last night’s UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar event, promotion president Dana White named the “Fight Night” winners for the pay-per-view event.

Earning $50,000 each were Antonio ‘Bigfoot’ Silva for “Knockout of the Night,” while Bobby Green earned the “Submission of the Night” bonus, leaving the “Fight of the Night” award to headliners UFC featherweight champ Jose Aldo and opponent Frankie Edgar.

UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar took place on Feb. 2nd at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. White announced an attendance of 10,275 spectators into the venue for a live gate of $2.437 million.

‘Bigfoot’ Silva shocked many, as well as his opponent Alistair Overeem, with a third round technical knockout of the Dutch fighter. The first two rounds saw Overeem control most of the fight, landing the better punches as well as dodging out of the way any significant punches Silva threw his way, all the while showing no respect for his opponent by leaving his hands down and his chin out. It cost him in the third as ‘Bigfoot’ rushed ‘The Reem’ cornering him against the fence and unloading heavy shots to the chin until referee Herb Dean was forced to jump in and pull the Brazilian off his opponent. The stoppage would come at 25-seconds of the round.

Green earned one of two submissions on the night by ending a tough fight with Jacob Volkmann with a third round rear-naked choke. Volkmann looked to be the better fighter through portions of the fight but Green was able to survive, even bouncing back from a questionable standup by referee Kim Winslow. In the third round during a scramble on the mat, Volkmann would fail to take Green’s back and ‘The King’ would step over into mount and open up with elbows. Green bloodied Volkmann up who attempted to roll away from the strikes right into a rear-naked choke forcing an end at 4:25 of the round.

The first “Super Fight” inside the Octagon saw Aldo and Edgar battle for five rounds with the champ landing the more devastating strikes throughout the first couple of rounds. Aldo would begin to slow down while Edgar kept up the pace, landing shots in the fourth and fifth as well as picking up the 145-lbs champ and slamming him to the mat. Despite what appeared to be a much closer fight only one judge saw more than one round for Edgar with scores of 49-46, 49-46 and 48-47 going to Aldo for the victory.
