With that said, UFC President Dana White handed out four “Performance of the night” awards at yesterday’s UFC 207 post-fight press conference.

Those $50,000 ‘UFC 207’ bonuses went to the following fighters:

Performance of the night bonus – Amanda Nunes earned an extra $50,000 for her first-round destruction of former title holder Ronda Rousey. Amanda was able to batter Rousey with punches early and often in the opening frame, forcing the referee to step in and mercifully stop the contest after just 48 seconds of action.

Performance of the night bonus – Alex Garcia pocketed an extra $50,000 for his brutal first-round knockout victory over veteran Mike Pyle. Garcia was able to catch Pyle coming in with a thunderous right hand that sent “Quicksand” crashing to the canvas.

Fight of the night bonus – Cody Garbrandt and Dominick Cruz each earned an extra $50,000 for their amazing five-round war which served as the co-main event of UFC 207. Cody was able to get the better of Dominick for the majority of the fight and was able to drop “The Dominator” on multiple occasions. In the end, Garbrandt was awarded a unanimous decision victory from the judges in attendance.
