Tyson Griffin and Thiago Tavares definitely entertained us with non-stop action throughout their entire fight. Although Griffin was the better man as he won via a unanimous decision, Tavares was able to last the entire fight as he slipped in a flying knee and had a few opportunities for a submission.
Congratulations to both of these great fighters as they won UFC’s “Fight of the Night” at UFC 76-Knockout and they each received a $40,000 USD bonus.
The “Submission of the Night” went to Forrest Griffin as he also pocketed a $40,000 USD bonus. As strange as this might sound, there was no “Knockout of the Night” given to any of the fighters because all of the fights came down to a decision or was ended by a submission.
