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.
