After two consecutive events with no “Fight of the Night” award, Josh Emmett and Shane Burgos made sure that changed at UFC on ESPN 11.

Emmett and Burgos received $50,000 apiece for their memorable scrap in the Saturday’s featherweight co-main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. A bout filled with memorable standup exchanges shifted in Emmett’s favor when the Team Alpha Male product floored Burgos twice in the final frame to propel him to a unanimous decision triumph.

Elsewhere, veteran standout Jim Miller pocketed a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award for a first-round submission of Roosevelt Roberts at lightweight. Miller took his opponent down early, and when Roberts attempted to scramble to his feet, the New Jersey native secured a fight-ending armbar at the 2:25 mark of the period.

Finally, Octagon newcomer Justin Jaynes took home the evening’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award for a quick finish of Frank Camacho in a preliminary lightweight affair. Jaynes dropped his foe with a pair of left hooks and then continued to swarm with punches to earn a stoppage 41 seconds after the fight began.
