Undercard Fighters Among UFC 105 Bonus Winners

For the third time in his UFC career, 24-year old British sensation Terry Etim procured “Submission of the Night” honors courtesy of a second-round guillotine choke victory over Shannon Gugerty at UFC 105. The win was the fourteenth of Etim’s career and his fifth inside the eight-sided cage.

Joining Etim in pocketing an extra €26,810 – or $40,000 to those of us in America – was fellow undercard fighter Dennis Siver. Siver earned “Knockout of the Night” after finishing Wolfslair product Paul Kelly with a series of strikes after initially hurting him with a perfectly placed spinning kick to the midsection.

Kelly’s teammate Michael Bisping fared better in both the result of his UFC 105 bout and in terms of taking home additional pay, as the former Ultimate Fighter champion’s two-round, back and forth affair with Denis Kang was named “Fight of the Night”. The win brought Bisping’s record to 18-2 and could be considered one of the most important of his career after suffering a devastating knockout to Dan Henderson in his previous Octagon appearance.

    Good night of fights.

    Didn’t expect Kang to not be able to pull guard what-so-ever.

    Glad Hardy shut up all the doubters and showed we have some new names in the WW division, along with Rumble.

    Brown showed that he is deserving of Chris Lytle match up that all us fans would love to see.

    Pearson was one of the best Ultimate Fighters straight out of any of the shows.

    Winner was only slightly less than Pearson based on who he was fighting, but good show none the less.

    Gustaffson(sp) should have got knock out of the night, and if not him Winner… but when there are multiple Ko’s, Tko’s, bakc and forth fights… we all win…

    Until Vera/Couture… that fight sucked, good thing it was on free tv and we had the option of changing the channel. :)

    How Andre’s cataclysmic overhand right didn’t get him the “KO of the Night”, I’ll never know..
    I didn’t see Siver’s fight but I thought it was just a TKO.. Seems like when you have a TKO up against a one punch KO you would award the latter..

    Did you see Gusaffsons straight right(i think) of Hamman? that one made me flinch from the brutality. I haven’t seen Siver’s either, but it would have to be good to top either of those ones.

    Yeah, I saw it, but still, if I remember correctly he wasn’t totally out until a couple of shots later on the ground.. Yet, Andre’s bomb had Roli out before he hit the ground.. Maybe the unnecessary shots to the unconscious Roli is what swayed Dana from giving it to Andre.. And then maybe the popularity is why Siver got it over Gustafsson..

    I thought Roli could be seriously hurt is how bad he got KO’d. I was like, ‘That’s it, first murder in the UFC…’

    I haven’t seen Siver’s fight but apparently it was set up by a real nice spinning back kick to the body and the other shots were just for show because Kelly was done from the kick.

    But still, I don’t know how anything could top Winner’s, that was quite a shot.
