Chris Lytle made the most of his last fight in the UFC, winning both the “Submission of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” awards, which puts him over $500,000 in bonus money in his career, spanning an incredible ten “Fight Night” awards.
He shares “Fight of the Night” honors with Dan Hardy, who engaged Lytle in a back-and-forth stand up war of attrition until late in the third round. Lytle then capitalized on a Hardy take down to secure a fight-ending guillotine choke that gave him an additional $65,000 for “Submission of the Night.
Donald Cerrone, meanwhile, made short work of the fast-rising young brazilian phenom, Charles Oliveira to capture his “Knockout of the Night” award. Cerrone earned the TKO in the first, after landing a stiff shot to the body that dropped Oliveira. Cerrone added a clipping knee as Oliveira went to the mat, and then finished up with a flurry of unanswered blows from the top, prompting the referee to intervene and stop the fight.
