UFC on Fuel TV 7 Post-Fight Press Conference – 100k bonus for Tom Watson

UFC on Fuel TV 7 combatants gathered to share their thoughts about what took place inside the Octagon at Wembler Arena in London, England. The event was headlined by Renan Barao‘s defense of his Interim UFC Bantamweight title, via Submission in Round 4. Also on the card, James Te-Huna recorded another amazing comeback, this time against Ryan Jimmo. Unfortunately for Te-Huna, his impressive performance did not get him the prestigious Fight of the Night Award.

Fifty thousand US Dollars dollars went to Tom “Kong” Watson, who celebrated his first victory in the UFC. Similar to Te-Huna, Watson came from behind against Stanislav Nedkov to earn a TKO finish in Round 2. Kong got another 50k for KO of the Night Award, totalling 100,000 in bonus payouts. As expected, Renan Barao earned Submission of the Night for his victory over Michael McDonald, which was in fact the only Tapout finish on the card.

Potential Light Heavyweight slugfest between Cyrille Diabate and Jimi Manuwa ended via doctor stoppage, after the Frenchman injured his left leg, and was declared unable to continue.

UFC on Fuel TV 7 recorded a 10,349 attendance.

    Dana – "No surprise that Watson Nedkov gets FOTN"… I'm actually really surprised, I thought Poirier Swanson had it for sure. Non stop action for 15 mins straight going in every dimension of MMA and both fighters getting caught with big punches or subs

    @Keith….. Nevkov getting blasted by knees one after the other got the nod for FOTN. Did you hear the crowd, I don't know if people were cheering for landing the knees or taking the knees to the face. Those types of fights don't keep you in the sport long.
