UFC 150 emanated live from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado and saw a night of loaded with action and excitement. The clear winner tonight was former WEC Title challenger Donald Cerrone, who takes home $120,000 for his knockout victory over Melvin Guillard. “The Young Assassin” took home $60,000 for his fight with the aforementioned “Cowboy,” as did TUF veteran Dennis Bermudez for his submission victory over Tommy Hayden.
Cerrone and Guillard battled for a grand total of 76 seconds, but it was still enough to earn a fight of the night performance in a brilliant night of fights. The Blackzilian badly hurt Cerrone early on, but never one to fold, “Cowboy” pulled through and landed a massive head kick on the New Orleans native, followed by a massive overhand right which absolutely leveled his former teammate. earning both men extra coinage for the night.
Bermudez, repeatedly took down Hayden in their bout, but it was a stiff teep from the TUF veteran that brought an end to the night of the “Wild Card.” After the stiff straight kick landed to the body, Hayden was seeing stars and shot for a lazy single, having his neck trapped in a guillotine and being forced to tap at 4:43 of the opening stanza.
