Roy Nelson, Mark Bocek, Frankie Edgar, and Matt Veach each earned $25,000 “fight night” bonuses for their performances on Saturday at The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, which took place at The Pearl at The Palms in Las Vegas and aired live on Spike TV.
Nelson knocked out fellow TUF 10 finalist Brendan Schaub in the opening round of the event’s headliner to win the season’s heavyweight tournament and the card’s “Knockout of the Night” bonus.
Bocek earned “Submission of the Night” for his first-round rear naked submission of newcomer Joe Brammer that kicked off the event’s preliminary card.
Edgar and Veach were awarded “Fight of the Night” honors for their main card clash that saw Veach score several impressive takedowns in the opening round only to have Edgar bounce back in the second with ground and pound before forcing Veach to submit to a rear naked choke.
