Following his return to the UFC, Ben Saunders, who won his bout via submission, became the first person to win a fight with an omoplata. If that wasn’t enough, he was awarded $50,000 for a performance of the night bonus. The highlight of Saunders night however? Getting a Tweet from WWE superstar CM Punk.

Saunders spoke with MMAJunkie:

“That was one of the coolest things in the world – him hitting me up for that,” Saunders said. “I’m a big fan of his, and it was an absolute honor to get attention from him.”
