Following last night’s UFC Fight Night 61 event in Brazil the recipients of the evening’s $50,000 bonus awards were announced.
There was no ‘Fight Of The Night’ awarded on this occasion, so that meant four fighters received ‘Performance Of The Night’ bonuses.
First up was Frank Mir who took just 100 seconds to knock out Antonio Siva in the main event of the evening.
Also claiming a first round KO was Sam Alvey who did absolutely nothing for over three minutes of the fight before suddenly uncorking a right and left hook that ended Cezar Ferreria’s night and earning him a performance bonus.
Marion Reneau was one of a number of underdogs who rose to the occasion on the night, pulling off a triangle choke submission from her back against Jessica Andrade.
Finally, the last ‘Performance Of The Night’ bonus went to Matt Dyer who produced a rare superman punch KO against William Macario in the first round of their preliminary card fight which earns him an extra $50,000 and will spice up his highlight reel.
