UFC Fight Night 170 Bonus Awards

Following last night’s UFC Fight Night 170 event in Brasilia the recipients of the evening’s $50,000 bonus awards were announced.

Earning ‘Fight Of The Night’ honors was a flyweight battle between Maryna Moroz and Mayra Bueno Silva.

This was a competitive scrap and Silva had her moments landing some big strikes, including mounting a late surge, but Moroz was landing with more frequency throughout the fight and she emerged with a unanimous decision victory.

Needless to say, submission king Charles Oliveira won a ‘Performance Of The Night’ bonus after he was able to catch Kevin Lee in a tight guillotine choke in the third round of the man event.

Also securing a performance bonus on this occasion was co-main event winner Gilbert Burns, who survived an early grappling exchange with Demian Maia and then floored him with a single punch when they got back upright, with the TKO victory being sealed moments later with hammerfists.

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.
