TUF 14 Finale Bonuses: Diego Brandao Picks Up an Extra $80,000, Will Be Able to Buy His Mom That House


(Aw man, he’s a Mormon? We just assumed he was a *normal* insane Christian, like Diego Sanchez. / Props: MMAJunkie)

From what we hear, Brazilian real estate is a buyer’s market right now. That’s good news for Diego Brandao, who earned enough bonus money last night to get his beloved mother a decent ranch house near all the good favelas. The UFC handed out $40,000 performance bonuses to the following TUF 14 Finale competitors:

Fight of the Night: Diego Brandao and Dennis Bermudez for their dramatic one-rounder, in which odds-on favorite Brandao started strong, then nearly got TKO’d, then pulled an armbar directly out of his ass with nine seconds left in the round.

Knockout of the Night: John Dodson, for generating an incredible amount of torque from that tiny body and smashing TJ Dillashaw in under two minutes.

Submission of the Night: Diego Brandao again, for armbarring victory out of the jaws of defeat.

And as we mentioned in yesterday’s liveblog, $25,000 “Best of the Season” bonuses were also awarded to these TUF 14 Finale competitors…

Fight of the Season: Dustin Pague vs Louis Gaudinot

Knockout of the Season: John Dodson (against Johnny Bedford)

Submission of the Season: Dennis Bermudez (against Akira Corassani)

…meaning that Dodson’s total bonus-take from last night was actually $65,000, which will buy the talented dynamo a whole lot of energy drinks and action figures.

@ fried Taco
i was more kind of talking about the the big fights that headlined but thanks for copying and pasting the fight results. We did not know who the winners were.

Fuck Mormonism, John Smith, and Diego Brandao.

Only a Moron discusses being a Mormon at a a press release.

@newly sober - Team Bisping 4-0? I guess you consider Dodson to be on Team Bisping due to his actions in the house and not the color of his shorts?
.
Team Bisping fighters won four fights, including the Count himself. Team Mayhem fighters won 5 fights. In Team B vs Team M fights, the score was 3-3 (including the coaches).
.
- Marcus Brimage (B) def. Stephen Bass (B) via unanimous decision (30-27 x 2, 29-28)
- John Albert (B) def. Dustin Pague (M) via TKO, 1:09 of round 1
- Roland Delorme (M) def. Josh Ferguson (B) via submission (rear-naked choke), 0:22 of round 3
- Steven Siler (M) def. Josh Clopton (NA) via unanimous decision (29-28 x 3)
- Bryan Caraway (M) def. Dustin Neace (M) via submission (rear-naked choke), 3:38 of round 2

Ummmm MMA1, at this point, I can submit Sakuraba, he was never a true test of Mayhem's skills either. It's painfully obvious he needs to retire and is not even in anyone's top 10 so its pretty clear you don't know shit except you're living proof your mom made a mistake when she fucked your dad who I'm guessing wasn't around at all. But it's late, I'm high, and I don' want to think about it anymore. I love Mayhem, but dude needs work on his entire approach to standup.

What we got a bunch of portugese speakers in here? How you fools know what that book says? Polygamy is illegal, and Jones, Jon is a super douche. That armbar was amazing though. Gotta give it up for Brandao

@ MMA1, J3t is that you bro?

@kiddinomite ARE YOU FUCKING RETARDED...BISBING IS A LEVEL Z FIGHTER----MAYHEM SUBMITTED SAKURABA RETARD !!!!.....BISPING CANNOT EVEN SUBMIT SAKURABA'S EYEBROW YOU DUMB FUCK !....HE NEEDS YOUR WHORE MOTHER TO BLOW HIM BEFORE FIGHTS AND NOT A MUAY THAI COACH (WHO ALSO WILL SUPERFUCK YOUR MOTHER) ...
MMA1- December 4, 2011 at 4:42 pm
BRENDAO IS A RETARDED IDIOT WHOREKID...HIS STYLE CAN SUCK MY FAT DICK...AND THAT LAST RETARD THAT SAID ''OH I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE BRENDAO AGAIN''-UFC HAS WASHED YOUR BRAIN LIKE IT WASHES EVERYONE'S BRAINS RETARD... I CAN'T WAIT TO GORILLAFUCK YOUR WHOREMOTHER... ALL OF YOU IDIOTS CAN SUCK MY GODZILLA SUPERDICK....FUCK BRENDAO!
KidDinomite- December 4, 2011 at 4:22 pm
I was seriously rooting for Mayhem but I didn't realize how much work the guy needs in his standup. He has a long reach so he should work the jab to establish distance, he has long legs to set up leg kicks as well. I think he seriously needs a high level Muay Thai/Boxing coach in order to work on his technique and learn to work angles, head movement, and footwork, all of which are basic fighting fundamentals. At this point, I'm sorry to say it but, I think Dana White would be right to cut him due to his performance. Mayhem definitely needs some more seasoning before he's ready to come back.
the glza- December 4, 2011 at 2:32 pm
dammit -- i liked that kid until i saw that picture. now i know that whenever he wins he's gonna go all god crazy in the interview and it ruins the whole thing (see jones, jon).

@ Karma
Your comment made no sense. We know it didn't land douchebag. WE WERE WATCHING IT. And what I said is that in my opinion it was not illegal because it did not land and that at the height of Bispings foot when he threw kick that had it landed then Mayhem would have been on his feet. English much?
You are a little attention whore. Trying to get people to troll you. No more. I am ignoring your stupidity from now on. Being ignored is like your kryptonite, you are so like a child in that way.
KarmaAteMyCat- December 4, 2011 at 12:37 pm
Bisping threw an illegal blow oh shit who cares.. Not to mention it didn't land NO HARM NO FOUL this is fighting not football.

@newly sober
re:Bisping Kick
You must understand that even if Miller would have stood up, Bisping threw the kick too early. Think about how a fighter stands back up and what constitutes a downed opponent. Think about how often we see fighters strategically place one hand on the ground when in "a plum" or position where they may take strikes to the head from an opponent. Both Bisping and Miller looked like garbage compared to what we saw from the fights below on the T.V. and Facefuck portion of the show.

Three things I am ecstatic, Meh, and impressed to have witnessed from last nights event.

Ecstatic - Brandao Vs. Bermudez - Welcome to the UFC and to the list of most exciting fights of all time.

Meh - I knew as soon as Mayhem did his walk out overhead clapping thing that he was done. He spent all his energy clapping his way into the ring. Team Bisping went what, 4-0 last night and Mayhem got dominated, Yeah he's gone, clapped your way right out of the UFC.

Impressed - I was impressed by Bisping last night not for beating a gassed opponent but for one move that he made. When Mayhem was crouched against cage and Bisping threw head kick that missed I don't think he missed. Rogan said "woah that was illegal" but it wasn't because if he had connected then Mayhem would have been on his feet. Bisping purposely set his kick high because if Mayhem had chosen that moment to get up it would have been highlight reel knockout. Not a huge deal but I though it was pretty impressive to try and time kick for where opponent will be not where he is.

@noizy
you get to claim to be a Christian, but can also practice polygamy.
FightZen- December 4, 2011 at 11:05 am
Miller/Bisping was the worst one sided beating since... well since the last time Miller fought in the UFC.
ktronics- December 4, 2011 at 10:37 am
@TPT Agreed.

If that's the best Mayhem we are going to get, he should be cut. Hope he gets another shot though. I recall watching Mayhem's fight week video at mmafighting, he kept saying 'I feel good' while doing drills. Sounded like he was testing something out. Good fights last night aside from the main event.
EnemyofReality- December 4, 2011 at 10:22 am
Not to mention taxes and paying Winkeljohn and Jackson. Maybe he'll be left with half. Guy is a stud though. I'm a fan.
EnemyofReality- December 4, 2011 at 10:17 am
Diego will have to donate 10 percent of his purse to the church.

What's the appeal of being a Mormon if you're not American?
ThePeoplesTroll- December 4, 2011 at 9:50 am
Mayhem must have been injured because he looked terrible at the weigh ins, even lost his fat head. then he starts throwing a terrible impression of Dan Hendersons overhand right and gasses in like 45 seconds. suposively he trains with greats so theres no excuse for that performance unless he was injured or something leading into the fight.
DangadaDang- December 4, 2011 at 9:18 am
God damn you Miller. God damn you.
Casa de los pantelones- December 4, 2011 at 9:15 am
Dennis looked good, the out of nowhere armbar culminated at exactly the right time, because dennis was digging all up in diego's grill. Miller disappointed. Whatever style of stand up he does, he needs to fix it right away pronto.
