These "OTN's" should be voted by the fans on their website after events, but no that would make to much sense and take away from the big mans ego
They let that happen once and it was a disaster. The crowd just voted by who their favorite fighter was instead of voting for who actually deserved it. And of-course they gave it to their fan favorite GSP. Instead of the fight that deserved it. Here is an article about it.

Quote:
For the first time since the UFC has been handing out post-fight performance based fighter bonuses, the Las Vegas-based mixed martial arts promotion let the fans decide who would receive the “Fight of the Night” honors and $100,000 bonus money for UFC 124… and that was that last time the fans will get to make that choice.

The fans voted for the one-sided main event between welterweight titleholder Georges St-Pierre and challenger Josh Koscheck, and UFC president Dana White was baffled by the decision.

“It’s one of the hazards of letting the fans vote. They’re always chirping about how we messed it up, and here we are,” said White during the UFC 124 post-fight press conference.

Questioned if it was a one-time deal letting the fans vote on the “Fight of the Night,” White said, “Yes. They blew their chance. That’s it. It’s over.”

White felt, along with many others, that Sean Pierson’s unanimous decision win over Matt Riddle in preliminary action deserved to be named “Fight of the Night.”

“A prelim fight was the ‘Fight of the Night’ in my book,” said the UFC president. “And we’ll take care of those guys.”
In theory it would be great but as spiderman would say "with great power comes great responsibility" and fans cant seem to be responsible.

But Dana is obviously guilty of it just as the fans are. Dana White is sooo enticed with that Ronda vagina that he voted with his small pee pee instead of his brain. But atleast Dana is hitting it behind closed doors so i cant blame the guy. lol

Hmph, figures.
Well there has to be a better/more fair way to decide these OTNs.
Anything but letting that one man pick his own personal favorites.

She spent a minute in the clinch after she got punched in the face, threw some knees and It was over.

There is just no universe besides Danas where that is concidered a better performance than any of the guys who fought on the prelims.

But hey, Will Smith didnt want to meet the prelim guys.

Good stuff from from Ronda, she was in complete control against the cage.

Early stoppage IMO, especially when you consider the chances Herb gave TJ.

What I see is MMAF is getting over populated of spoiled fans. It is normal to have positive and negative criticism, but lately, when you go into a thread like this, the general idea is "everything sucks", "MMA is downhill", "Dana, Rogan and Ronda are just selling rotten tomatoes", "Herb Dean sucks big time", "those guys are two cans" (Cans > Fans, btw).

Every event is unpredictable. Fighters are doing their best, with all their good and bad calls and not every fight can be that exciting for everybody.

People are still discussing the excitement of women MMA and this is clearly a matter of opinion. You don't like women fighting, you don't like lighter divisions? Move along. Don't watch and thus don't waste time commenting.

The fight was short, so what? We just saw Ronda Rousey break her own streak of submissions and go toe to toe against a strong Olympic wrestler and not only made the fight standing but got the KO with precise knees to the liver. How that wasn't exciting?

People underestimate how painful and incapacitating blows to the liver can be. It is so destructive Sara collapsed to her knees like a bag of potatoes and did not care to protect her head. She was done. Sure after she is no longer in danger she recovered, it's not like she were unconscious. She was classy about HD, but she also knows she was in a world of trouble and doing zero to protect herself.

Sure I wanted to see more fight, but Ronda destroyed Sara.

There's no such thing as an "unmeaningful fight" when we are talking about professionals here.
Maybe a street brawl following a traffic dispute could receive that label.

Definitely some confused folk around here, it's like Sherdog.

If you don't like the sport, don't bother watching it, let alone going on the internet to tell everyone.

It is utter bullshit. As if Ronda wasn't already making enough with her 110k disclosed pay along with all that PPV points and backroom bonuses.

The Waldburger fight was a horribly late stoppage. This stoppage might have been early but it is pretty hard to tell with liver shots just how bad it is. You really can't defend yourself after you get dropped by one either. It isn't like you are badly rocked and just slow to react; you can't lift your arms up to protect yourself and your legs are gone. That could last for a couple seconds or for a while so it is hard to say how many shots someone needs to eat to the face to stop it.

Negative this and negative that... complain complain complain

I'm not sure I've read anything positive here in weeks.

Everyone is so critical of every little detail it seems like no one is even enjoying MMA anymore.

Great Stoppage !!

well done Herb , but he ****ed up in the TJ fight

The Pyle stoppage was kinda stupid , he gave him way to much time after the first elbow from the mount was clearly over...
