After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Charles Oliveira (Pictured), Lavar Johnson, Evan Dunham and Nik Lentz each an additional $65,000 for their special performances Saturday at “UFC on FOX: Evans vs. Davis.”
Oliveira earned his bonus by executing a seldom-seen calf slicer submission in the 1stRound against Eric Wisely. The bout was “do Bronx’s” featherweight debut.
Johnson viciously disposed of Joey Beltran with a barrage of uppercuts in their heavyweight affair. “Big” took home ‘Knockout of the Night’ for forcing Beltran to face plant.
Dunham and Lentz competed in a back-and-forth battle until a nasty cut below Lentz’s eye forced cageside doctors to call the contest after the 2ndRound. The lightweights were awarded with ‘Fight of the Night’ for their 10-minute bout.
UFC on FOX took place inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Fight of the Night:
Evan Dunham and Nik Lentz ($65,000/each)
