UFC Vegas 76 Bonus Report: Sean Strickland one of four fighters to take home $50k

By Chris Taylor - July 1, 2023

The Octagon returned to Nevada for tonight’s UFC Vegas 76 event, a 12-bout fight card headlined by Sean Strickland vs. Abus Magomedov.


The highly anticipated middleweight bout resulted in a strong showing for Strickland. The American was able to weather an early storm from his Russian opponent, which included a brutal eye poke, and went on to overwhelm him with strikes. ‘Tarzan’ ultimately finished off a quickly-exhausted Magomedov with ground and pound in the late stages of round two.

The co-main event of UFC Vegas 76 featured a lightweight contest between Damir Ismagulov and Grant Dawson. The bout proved to be a coming out party for Dawson. ‘KGD’ showcased his excellent takedowns and grappling skills on route to earning a lopsided unanimous decision victory over Ismagulov. The impressive win extended Grant’s undefeated streak to eleven in a row and he is now 8-0-1 inside of the Octagon.

Following the conclusion of tonight’s event at the Apex, UFC officials announced at the post-fight press conference that four fighters would be taking home performance bonuses.
