UFC on FX Bonuses: Barry, Morecraft, Miller, Denis Each Collect $45K

Pat Barry, Christian Morecraft, Jim Miller and Nick Denis were each awarded post-fight bonuses of $45,000 for their performances Friday at UFC on FX in Nashville.

In the Fight of the Night, heavyweight striker Pat Barry battled back from numerous submission attempts to TKO Christian Morecraft with ground and pound punches.

The end came when Barry slipped a left hook to land a leaping left hook of his own to floor Morecraft. Barry pounced and referee Herb Dean called a stop to the fight at three minutes and 38 seconds of the opening round.

The Submission of the Night involved another comeback. Jim Miller weathered through a knockdown to capitalize on opponent Melvin Guillard's weakness in submission defense. During a scramble, Miller hopped on a standing Guillard and pulled him to the ground to set up the rear-naked choke. Miller locked in the body triangle and forced the tapout at two minutes and four seconds of the first.

Sengoku and King of the Cage veteran Nick Denis needed only 22 seconds to win his UFC debut and collect the Knockout of the Night. The Canadian bantamweight brutally finished Joseph Sandoval with rapid-fire right elbows from standing.
