Post-fight notes from UFC



Mike and I will be back late tonight with a full rundown of the show as well as the latest pro wrestling news from WWE and TNA.

Bonsus of $40,000 went to Brad Pickett for best knockout, Matt Wiman best submission and Stefan Struve vs. Stipe Miocic for best fight.

Dana White hinted at more bonuses, in particular Jimi Manuwa vs. Kyle Kingsbury who he said had fight of the night until the main event.

Kingsbury has multiple fractures around the eye and nose.  He's going to have a long layoff from training after that one.

Much of the post-fight press conference regarded talking about how they want to come to Europe more, saying they owed Scotland and Ireland shows.

Matt Wiman said he was a little embarrassed about crying after his win.

Gunnar Nelson has almost as match charisma as Shane Carwin.

On DaMarques Johnson not making weight, Dana White said:  "It pisses Joe Silva off and you don't want to do that.  You're a professional.  If you say you're going to make weihgt, you make weight.  You know we don't like that.  It's never good."

White teased the idea of Michael Bisping getting a title shot in the U.K., but also brought up the probelm with the time difference
