After an entertaining night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Fabricio Werdum (pictured), Kelvin Gastelum, Henry Briones and Guido Cannetti each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 180: Werdum vs. Hunt.”
Werdum not only took home the interim heavyweight title by plastering Mark Hunt in the main event, but he also scored $50,000 for “Performance of the Night” for his highlight reel TKO victory.
Gastelum proved that he’s a legitimate threat in the welterweight division by steamrolling Jake Ellenberger in the co-featured attraction. He also took home “Performance of the Night.”
Briones and Cannetti were awarded with “Fight of the Night” honors. Briones submitted him with a slick rear-naked choke in the second round of their shootout.
UFC 180 took place inside Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City.
