UFC president Dana White awarded Andrei Arlovski (pictured), Godofredo Pepey, Gleison Tibau and Piotr Hallmann each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC Fight Night: Bigfoot vs. Arlovski II.”
Arlovski avenged his 2010 defeat to Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva by knocking out the Brazilian in tonight’s featured attraction. The highlight reel finish was good enough for one “Performance of the Night” bonus.
Pepey’s nifty armbar submission on Dashon Johnson scored the other “Performance of the Night” check.
Tibau and Hallmann’s back-and-forth battle took home “Fight of the Night” honors.
UFC Fight Night 51 took place inside Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.
