Fight for the Troops bonuses

Everyone who watched the Fight For the Troops would be in agreement with Josh Koshcheck’s winning the $30,000 knockout of the night bonus. The announcement came not long after his devastating two punch knockout of Yoshiyuki Yoshida. Even the commentators, Mike Goldberg and Joe Rogan, immediately stated that they were sure it would get KO of the night honors.

Steve Cantwell was the recipient of the submission of the night $30,000 bonus after his arm-breaking (he literally gave Al-Hassan a two-way elbow) technical submission of Razak Al-Hassan. The hard to watch submission victory came at 4:04 of round 1. Amazingly, the referee, Mario Yamasaki, had to stop the match, as Al-Hassan never tapped, even while his arm was being hyper-extended, thus making the victory and actual technical submission, which goes on Cantwell’s record as a TKO.
