After a night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Dustin Poirier (pictured), Akira Corrasani, K.J. Noons and Ryan Jimmo each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Wednesday night at “The Ultimate Fighter Nations Finale.”
Poirier and Corrasani were only in the cage together for five minutes and 42 seconds, but their shootout was good enough to score “Fight of the Night” honors. Poirier ultimately ended things by unleashing a barrage of punches in the second round.
Noons slapped Sam Stout unconscious just 30 ticks into their welterweight affair to earn “Performance of the Night.” It also took Jimmo under a round to knock out Steve Bosse to win the other “Performance of the Night” check.
TUF Nations Finale took place inside Colisée Pepsi in Quebec City, Quebec, Canada.
Fight of the Night:
Dustin Poirier and Akira Corrasani ($50,000/each)
Performances of the Night:
