    I seen a lot of complaining about this, i have no idea why. I personally thought barao vs dillashaw was the clear FOTN.

    Mizugaki vs. Rivera was a very strong runner-up for FOTN but by no means is it better then the title fight was. Title fights if they go into the late rounds will always beat out nontitle fights that only go 3 rounds for FOTN if everything else is equal.

    Barao vs Dillashaw was a one sided beatdown, and Barao was never in the fight and connected with no good shots or did anything expcept be a punching bag.. thats not fight of the night, fight of the nights are only back and forth close fights that are exciting.

    This. TJ definitely deserved a performance bonus, but Barao did nothing to earn one other than holding on until the 5th.

    Dana always said that fight of the nights are always close fights. when has a total beatdown ever been fight of the night until this? I can't remember one. seriously.

    FOTN should be competetive - not a 1-sided beatdown.

    OK with it, think its a way to give TJ and Barao some extra money.

    TJ probably only made 20/20 for that fight vs Barao so its a way to throw him some extra money so its a decent payday for him.

    Will likely need to win a few more fights before getting a new big champ deal so I'm ok with him getting two bonuses.

    the fight that had me on the edge of my seat, sweating bullets,praying and dying to take a piss but unwilling to leave my chair for fear of missing a WTF moment was


    surprise surprise the TJ/Barao fight.

    so i have no problem it got FOTN.

    Mizugaki vs. Rivera was not a better fight than the main event.

    It's not called "closest fight of the night"
