Following last night's UFC Fight Night 112 event in Oklahoma the recipients of the evening's $50,000 bonus awards were announced.
To be fair to Lee, he was in control throughout the first round and appeared well on his way to victory if things followed suit. Bad blood had brewed between the fighters as a result of events that transgressed during the UFC's 'summer kick-off' press conference back in May earlier this year. "Big Rigg" missed the 186-pound middleweight limit Saturday morning by two pounds and forfeited 20 percent of his purse to Boetsch.
"Bigg Rigg" has a history of weight-cutting problems during his days at welterweight, some which would lead to problems physically.
Boetsch landed 42 of his 69 strike attempts, or 61 percent, during the fight compared to just 10 of 45 (22 percent) for Hendricks.
Hendricks considered retirement previous year after losing three fights in a row in the welterweight division before deciding to make one final push by moving up to middleweight.
Lee's win over Chiesa is set to fire him up the lightweight rankings, but there could now be an immediate rematch. Chiesa held onto the guillotine throughout, thus Lee's head seemed to make contact with the mat when he completed the slam.
Former UFC welterweight champion Johny Hendricks had everything in his favour going into UFC Fight Night in his home state.
Lightweights Kevin Lee and Michael Chiesa faced off Sunday in the main event of UFC Fight Night in Oklahoma City. Needless to say, he was livid immediately afterwards in the octagon.

Georgia fugitives reach road's end: a driveway in Tennessee
They ultimately left the truck in Tennessee and stole a white sedan, which they abandoned near the hostages' home, Swing said. A different homeowner who later spotted the inmates trying to steal his vehicle held them at gunpoint until officers arrived.
UFC president Dana White didn't waste any time putting forward his thoughts on the call.
The debate will be whether Chiesa was close to passing out but now nobody will ever know the answer.
As a mostly one-sided first round in Lee's favour was nearing the end, he was able to secure a deep choke. "He went limp. It was still 45 more seconds left in the fight". I didn't see the tap.
"I was robbed by Mike".
"I'll fight him in Detroit, I'll fight him in December".
"Something has to be done about it", said Chiesa.
On planning to appeal the call: "We're going to seek due diligence".
It wasn't the way that Lee wanted to get the victory, but he also felt that the fight wasn't going to take a turn. "I only care about becoming number one". He wants to fight in Detroit. "I don't even know what a DDT is".
