UFC 119: Mir vs. Cro Cop had the Zuffa organization giving out $350,000 in bonus money. The usual rewards were given out except for KO of the night, despite one knockout that took place in the main event. The UFC has not released any information on why Frank Mir was not rewarded for the night, but could be assumed to be for a lackluster performance between the two veterans.
Many critics such as Kevin Iole called it as “one of the worst main events in modern UFC history.” Even Mir himself publicly said at the post-fight press conference, “It was a pretty shitty performance … I’ll make the statement that shitty win is better than a shitty loss … I’m completely pissed off with my performance.”
Instead of a KO of the night bonus awarded, two fight of the nights were awarded. Matt Mitrione vs. Joey Beltran, and Sean Sherk vs. Evan Dunham.
Do you think the Zuffa organization made the right decision?
