UFC Texas: Sanchez-Melendez Claim “Fight Of The Night”

In a decision nobody argued with, Gilbert Melendez and Diego Sanchez claimed “Fight of the Night” at UFC 166 Saturday evening.

The two lightweights put on a three-round battle, as “El Nino” earned the decision victory. Both claimed an extra $60,000 for their efforts.

John Dodson won “Knockout of the Night,” while Tony Ferguson picked up the “Submission of the Night.” They each also claimed $60,000 checks.

The attendance was announced at 17,238 inside the Toyota Center in Houston, for a live gate of $2.5 million.
