The Ultimate Fighting Championship started off this week with a great night of fights on the George Mason University campus. Only three of the nights bouts ended by way of stoppage — two submissions and one knockout. It was a night of close fights that saw four split decisions and one majority draw.
Gerald Harris, Evan Dunham, Aaron Simpson and Tom Lawlor were the recipients of $30,000 fight night bonuses.
Harris was the only fighter to earn a finish by strikes and that left him the only choice to win Knockout of the Night.
Fight of the Night went to Aaron Simpson and Tom Lawlor. Simpson was the victor via split decision.
Evan Dunham handed Ultimate Fighter winner Efrain Escudero the first loss of his career on way to receiving Submission of the Night honors.
