Four fighters netted themselves an extra $50,000 each at UFC Fight Night 30 Saturday, but none more important than Lyoto Machida.
Machida delivered in his debut at middleweight, flooring Mark Munoz with a first round head-kick. That scored him “Knockout of the Night” and gave him a strong hold on a future contender bout in his new home.
The “Submission of the Night” belonged to Nicholas Musoke, while Luke Barnatt and Andrew Craig earned “Fight of the Night.”
A total of 10,355 fans packed the Manchester Arena in England for a live gate of $1.5 million.
