After a night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Tarec Saffiedine, Hyun Gyu Lim, Max Holloway (pictured) and Russell Doane each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC Fight Night: Saffiedine vs. Lim.”
Saffiedine and Lim put on the most thrilling show of the evening in the card’s featured contest. Saffiedine battered Lim’s left thigh for most of their 25-minute affair, but Lim came storming back in the final minutes to nearly pull off the upset. Their shootout was good enough for “Fight of the Night.”
Doane put Leandro Issa to sleep with a triangle choke in the event’s first bout. Doane took home “Submission of the Night” honors.
Holloway collected a much-needed win by going off on Will Chope. He posted an impressive TKO with a vicious flurry in the second stanza of their tango. Halloway scored “Knockout of the Night” for his performance.
UFC Fight Night 34 took place inside Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore.
