    $40k for KO of the night

    And an additional $40k for for both him and his opponent Paul Taylor for fight of the night.
    Actually I think that Taylor just found a way to lose that fight rather that Marcus plainly beating him. Taylor was mounted by Davis and his main defense was to attempt to punch Davis from the mounted position. :ugh:

    Good for him!

    He's progressed pretty damn well from a full blown boxer to a decent MMA fighter.

    What's more impressive is Marcus getting KO of the night with an armbar :eek3:

    :o

    Oops meant sub of the night.

    Houston got the KO bonus.

    It was a quick hefty bump, last ufc was a 35k bonus.

    I'm happy for Davis. He was the guy who was quite a bit older than everyone else and I thought was looked at as an old dog that couldn't learn new tricks. a good boxer that was too old to learn mma.

    good for him.

    Taylor's ground game was frustrating to watch.

    Good to hear he got a nice paycheck. I've always liked him because of how well he has progressed from being a 1 dimensional boxer to a mma fighter

    I'm not very original so I'm just going to say that it was cool fight and he deserved it.
