Following yesterday’s UFC On ESPN 20 event the recipients of the evening’s $50,000 bonus awards were announced.
Earning ‘Fight Of The Night’ honors was a preliminary card match-up between Mike Davis and Mason Jones, which saw both men put in a strong, battle performance for the full three rounds, though ultimately it was Davis who emerged victorious via unanimous decision (29-28 x3).
Warlley Alves picked up one of two ‘Performance Of The Night’ awards after he hit the ground running in his fight against Mounir Lazzez, piling on the pressure early with aggressive offense, which resulted in him landing three brutal body kicks in a row that crumpled his opponent to the mat. Follow-up punches then quickly sealed the TKO stoppage win.
Also scooping up a performance bonus was Khabib’s cousin Umar Nurmagomedov, who showed off his well-rounded skills on the way to a second round rear-naked choke submission victory against Sergey Morozov.
