UFC 199 in Los Angeles delivered some memorable fights and solid finishes.
With that said, UFC President Dana White handed out three “Performance of the night” awards at last night’s UFC 199 post fight press conference.
Those $50,000 ‘UFC 199’ bonuses went to the following fighters:
Performance of the night bonus – Michael Bisping became the UFC’s new middleweight champion by defeating Luke Rockhold via first-round knockout in last night’s UFC 199 main event. The stunning short-notice victory earned “The Count” a $50,000 performance of the night bonus.
Performance of the night bonus – Dan Henderson added another knockout victory to his highlight reel at last night’s UFC 199 event in Los Angeles. “Hendo” blasted former Bellator title holder Hector Lombard with a head kick followed by an elbow that sent “Lightning” crashing to the canvas. The spectacular KO earned “Hendo” a performance of the night bonus.
Fight of the night bonus – Polo Reyes and Dong Hyun Kim earned an extra $50,000 each for their epic fight which kicked off the UFC 199 prelims in Los Angeles. Kim and Reyes went back a forth in a jaw-dropping war, before Reyes eventually scored the knockout finish in round three.
