    TUF 17 Finale & season 'OTN' bonuses - Mixed Martial Arts News

    $50,000 'of the Night' Performance Bonuses:

    Knockout of the Night
    Travis Browne over Gabriel Gonzaga, via elbows to the head, at 1:11 of Round 1.

    TUF 17 Finale Gate and Attendance
    http://www.mmaweekly.com/tuf-17-fina...and-attendance
    The Ultimate Fighter Season 17 Finale took place Saturday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, drawing an audience of 5,549, producing gate revenues of $569,000.

    The UFC announced the attendance at gate at the TUF 17 Finale post-fight press conference.

    Those numbers are rather unimpressive for an event at Mandalay Bay, but that is largely because UFC events at the casino are typical of the pay-per-view variety. They are fight cards loaded with much more star power, and packing a bigger marketing punch.

    Relative to recent Ultimate Fighter finales, however, TUF 17’s numbers dwarfed them.

    TUF 16 drew an audience of 2,500 for a gate of $318,525, while TUF 15 – the ill-fated live season – recorded an attendance of 1,628 for a gate of $195,250.

    looking at the gif, it looks like the shots that put Gonzaga away were to the back of the head. Like the first 2 elbows were to the ear, then the next 3 were to the back of the head and that's when Gonzaga started going down.

    Tate/Zingano was a really great fight, that was exciting as hell to watch.

    For sure, those ladies fought with a lot of heart last night. I was impressed by Cat's power and come back for the TKO.

    Meisha is already complaining Kim stopped the fight to early but I have to disagree with Tate, she was getting blasted with those knees and it was only getting worse.

    I could see where the complaint comes from since she wasn't out, but ya I agree with you I think it was a good stoppage. Tate was getting blasted and the fight was on its way to a brutal KO.

    I thought it was early. I don't know how much it would have mattered because Tate was getting blasted but she definitely wasn't out. Looked to me like she was looking for a takedown to avoid the knees.

    Travis Browne gets a bonus for Illegal Elbows to the back of the head????????? Maybe (and that's a big maybe) the first 2 were borderline legal, but he still landed 2 afterwards that were clearly to the back of the head. He should have been DQ'ed!!! This has to be some joke??

    I loved the Tate/Kat fight but I thought it was stopped early. Tate won the first 2 rounds so all she had to do was survive the 3rd. And even though she was taking vicious shots, she was still fighting/defending. Considering what was on the line, (title shot, tv show slot, superstardom) I really wish that dumb butch referee would have let it go on a little longer just to be sure.
    How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if woodchucks could chuck wood?

    Edit: come to think of it, If Tate had survived the 3rd round, it could have been scored 10-8 resulting in a draw.
    Then we could have had a 3 way fight for the women's title!!!

    I think Hester got boned for KOTN, considering some of Browne's elbows were questionable, especially on replay. I don't care if Napao was already out, he still landed illegal blows before it was stopped, which will probably not overturn-able, should've probably gotten Hester the KOTN bonus for that gnarly elbow.

    Without rewatching it as I thought Tate fell down from the blows as Cat backed away. It's a tough call but I'm fine with it, as it's a ref's job to avoid extra blows.

    Just because a fighter can recover fast from a flash KO doesn't mean they weren't KO'd.
    So if a fighter isn't in a position to stop addittional strikes and offer offense thats when a Ref is to step in, and I feal Tate was in a position to recieve extra strikes if let go.
    Fighters like Big Nog who have withstoud tremendous punishment, and granted extra time to recover from it and it Shows. How old is Big Nog and he doesn't have it any more [ compared to the past], and he's in his lower thirties

    there was no flash KO so that point is moot. You can clearly see that Miesha's legs were driving forward and her arms reaching for a low single....my 15 year old cousin who just started wrestling in HS noticed it.

    Kim is simply the worst referee in the business alongside Mazagatti.
