TUF 26 Finale Post-Fight bonus Awards

Following last night’s TUF 26 Finale the recipients of the evening’s $50,000 bonus awards were announced.

Earning ‘Fight Of The Night’ honors was the main card flyweight title fight between Nicco Montano and Roxanne Modafferi, a spirited five round scrap that left both fighters bloodied, though ultimately Montano got the better of the action on both the feet and the mat to emerge as the inaugural champion.

Meanwhile, Gerald Meerschaert earned one of two ‘Performance Of The Night’ bonuses after he stopped Eric Spicely dead in his tracks with a vicious kick to the liver midway through the second round of their fight.

Brett Johns scooped up the other performance bonus after he surprised Joe Soto early in the first round by going for a rare calf-slicer submission, forcing the tap-out with just 30 seconds on the clock.

Ross launched MMA Insight (previously FightOfTheNight.com) in 2009 as a way to channel his passion for the sport of mixed martial arts. He's since penned countless news stories and live fight reports along with dozens of feature articles as the lead writer for the site, reaching millions of fans in the process.
