I thought when a fighter misses weight, their fight isn't eligible for a FOTN bonus? HAd I know that not to be the case, then I would have picked Whittaker as FOTN, not POTN. Robert Whittakre should have gotten a POTN bonus, and a 4th POTN bonus should have been handed out. Not a FOTN bonus for 1 fighter but not the other due to missing weight. That extra 50k should have went to Smith, Ige or De La Rocha. That's cheap.

I disagree! Whittaker/Romero had rightfully earned FOTN. You can't take that away from that great fight. Now with Romero missing weight he disqualified himself on any type of bonus. Bit theres no way you can say Whittaker deserved a POTN FOR a close decision when it was hands down the best FOTN. SHAME on Romero, not the side Game ran on a free mma site.

I never said shame on the side game, nor was I complaining about the side game... When I said "that's cheap", I was referring to the UFC for what I thought was not giving out a 4th 50k. Then I realised that Whittaker got Romero's 50k, on top of his, which I don't mind at all. I just wanted to see the UFC hand out the full 200k and not hold onto 50K themselves because of Romero.

I just had no idea that a fight 'in general' can be considered FOTN when one of the fighters misses weight. I thought it made that fight ineligible for FOTN, in 'real life'. I've seen FOTN performances where a fighter has missed weight, but that fight doesn't get it, and I thought the reason behind it was because the fight was ineligible, and only a POTN bonus can be given to the person who made weight. But I guess I was wrong on that.

But if I was right on that and the fight was ineligible of a FOTN bonus due to Romero missing weight, then I definitely think Whittaker should have received a POTN bonus, for his 'performance of the night', it was awesome! You don't have to get a finish to get a POTN bonus. Khabib got one when he beat up Barboza, but he never got a finish in that fight. The Whittaker/Romero fight was different than that one, but Robert definitely deserved a bonus, which he got, so I'm happy. And the UFC gave out the full 200k, so I'm happy that now.

I'm not sure how you interpenetrated that as me saying shame on the side game or complaining about the side game, at all?
