he got fotn, by default, by getting pounded on, not by fighting, so dana had to give chael something!!! and he couldn't give him fotn without giving it to silva too

silva got his bonus for his effort, and he got a bonus for chaels effort too


so in conclusion, don't be ticked off that anderson got two bonuses, he got the one solely piggy backing on sonnen, who did deserve it, cause if sonnen didn't get fotn bonus, we would most certainly have something to be ticked about

I gotcha now. Sorry, I was trying to browse through the forums quick while at lunch & I guess I didn't read your post as thoroughly as I should have

I disagree. I think that, without the last-second sub, that wouldn't have gotten FotN. Chael's "bonus" would have been the MW belt & all the fame that goes along with it. There were other fights that night (Guida/Dos Anjos comes to mind) that were more hotly contested that the Silva/Sonnen fight was up until the sub. IMO, that doesn't get FotN unless Silva has that amazing come-from-behind victory. The itself sub was not worthy of SotN, but the sub in context of that bout made the confrontation FotN worthy.

I agree that the sub made that FOTN. otherwise it's a onesided beating. and a sub that turns a one sided beating into FOTN is SOTN worthy.

i disagree with this, a one sided beating is still fotn, fotn is imho for the most entertaining fight, most action, even if it is from only one guy, and 4.5 action packed rds of silva beatdown is very entertaining

of course a two sided slugfest would prolly be a better pick for fotn but a 23 solid minute beatdown of AS in the main event would prolly even trump all the other fights anyways

the only thing that really for sure isn't fotn worthy would be a no action fight

matt's fight was a nice sub, but lacked action, it was too short, therefore no fotn, so submissions in my opinion can't possibly turn a fight into fight of the night, it's an oxymoron, fight of the night takes everything into consideration BUT the ending, that is what the ko and sub bonuses are for

I disagree. To be SotN, it has to be the most spectacular sub of the night. When you compare a triangle that Sonnen has tapped to/Silva has won with before vs. a choke that has everyone screaming "What was that, I've never seen it before!!!", it's pretty hands down (IMO) which deserves SotN.
