UFC Gives Yuri Alcantara Win Bonus Despite No-Contest At UFC On FX 7

UFC officials announced during the post-fight press conference for UFC on FX: Belfort vs. Bisping that Yuri Alcantara would be given his win bonus despite his bout with Pedro Nobre being ruled a no-contest.

The fight was stopped after the referee ruled that Alcantara had hit Nobre will several illegal strikes to the back of the head. Upon further review, it appeared that most of the strikes were to the side, but Nobre remained face-down on the mat for several minutes following the stoppage.

UFC president Dana White ripped into Dan Miragliotta, the ref in charge, on Twitter following the decision.

Nobre has been released from the hospital following further examination and appears to have escaped the fight without any injuries.
