    I'm with everyone who said Miller deserved SOTN, he armbarred a BJJ Black Belt for crying out loud.

    Jim Miller eats BJJ black belts for breakfast! Though he himself is a blackbelt, with great technique I might add. I like how he caught the right arm, here I was thinking he was going for the left arm, and saying to my buddy "He doesn't have it yet", then boom, tapout. Lol.

    Miller should have gotten sub of the night but the rousey/Tate fight deserved fotn. I found it to be the most exciting fight on the card.

    a but if they keep awarding her stuff, a year or two from now, when people complain that she hasn't progressed beyond a one-trick pony, her fanboys will be able to say "butbutbut she's won 4 OTN's!" and nobody will remember how undeserved some of them were.

    And thus the hype machine continues.

    I absolutely hate when UFC hands these OTN bonuses to the main eventers, especially when they could have gone to more deserved fighters.. These main eventers are already banking a lot with their pay and PPV bonuses. This is the UFC's way of pushing their main eventers status with these bonuses.

    Case in point...I did not feel Jon Jones deserved his SOTN bonus against Vitor. I dont see how UFC can award a bonus to a guy who fought his opponent coming in on 2 weeks notice, a MW no less, and fought with broken hand. JOnes just overpowered Vitor and subbed him. Nothing special about it. I believe Vinny Mag was on the same card and he used a beautiful transition to sub Igor Pokrajac. That was more well deserved.

    Same thing when he fought Rampage. The whole fight JOnes just kicked away at Rampage's knees and ran away anytime Jackson came within range. Jones finally takes down an exhausted Jackson and RNC him. UFC overlooks Nate Diaz's armbar (only one of the year btw) over Gomi, which was done during a great transition on the ground.

    The same thing last night, with Rhonda having to make multiple attempts before she got Tate in that armbar. The whole time on the ground she was trying to yank on the arm and she finally got it 12 minutes in, after Tate showed she had no more energy to grapple with Rhonda. JIm Miller on the other hand, just did his thing, and sub another BJJ black belt with a beautiful transition on the ground and got that sub with technique.

    I've felt Anderson Silva received a few unworthy OTN bonuses as well. Maybe it's just me, but the UFC has a knack of appeasing their star divas (Jones, Silva, Rousey)

    You absolutely hate when they give OTN bonuses to the main card? What about Bigfoot vs Hunt? And I'm sure I could go on.

    I'm of the mindset that Miller should have gotten the sub bonus. But I believe he got a nice check after the fact.

    Bigfoot and Hunt was def well deserved (IMO FOTY candidate for close back and forth battle, unlike Diego/Melendez)


    What I meant was I hate when OTN are given to main eventers when there was someone on the prelims who should have received it for pulling off a more deserving, stellar performance.

    My point is the UFC tends to give the more popular/Big name fighter the bonus than to someone with a lesser name, probably because it helps sell a guy/gal like Jones or Rousey with their list of accomplishments when they promote them for a fight.

    I think he is referring to times where it appears they give the bonus to the bigger name fighter in the main or co main event. for example lesnar's basic arm triangle getting it over lytle's crazy inverted armbar from full mount at ufc 116.
