Performance is often overlooked on UFC cards for finishes and exciting fights, but I think that needs to change. The "Performance of the Night" poll is designed to show who fans think was the star performer after every UFC event.

Last weeks UFC on Fox 10 "Performance of the Night" winner was Donald Cerrone. "Cowboy" topped the poll with 42% for his first round knockout of Adriano Martins.

Second in the vote was Alex "Bruce Leeroy" Caceres. Caceres took 24% of the poll for his third round submission over previously unbeaten Sergio Pettis.

Despite the early stoppage, Renan Barão put in an excellent performance last night with his win over Urijah Faber. Abel Trujillo also put in a great effort with his come from behind win over Jamie Varner.

In the prelims Al Iaquinta put on an dominant performance, taking his third win in the Octagon over a tough fighter in Kevin Lee.

Cast your votes below for this weeks "Performance of the Night" winner and checkout the results.

  1. 1. Renan BarĂ£o

    Not sure why so many picking Barao. He didn't actually stop anyone and his fight lasted nowhere near long enough to determine a winner properly. Why are we acting like it was a show of spectacular fashion when his win was caused by a misunderstanding and he was hitting nothing but gloves? Jose Aldo on the other hand made a great fighter look sloppy and out of his league until the last 2 minutes when he luckily got a TD which he scored no more than a few punches.

    to answer the question it was Trujillo because he got the win, but Varner deserves just as much credit in that fight.

    WHAT? Barao didn't do enough to determine he was going to demolish Faber? He was hitting nothing but gloves? with his ground strikes. Did you watch any part of the fight before that? He was putting the beats all over Faber. He dropped him 3 times within a minute and half. He had Faber's number again this time he finished him.

    He was swinging for the fences and caught Faber which could have happened to him too and Faber was not near being finished and has come back from far, far worse than that. I have so much respect for the Brazilian elite and do count them at the top but that fight was not the best performance of the night. Aldo looked by far the most elite fighter last night. Faber is more than capable of bringing it to Barao. Faber demolished Macdonald who gave Barao far more problems. It was far too soon to decide the winner.

    Trujillo's performance wins it for me because it was a spectacular knockout that capped off a comeback. Varner was swingin for the fences too which helped make it such a good scrap.
