Following UFC 182, UFC president Dana White awarded Jon Jones (pictured), Daniel Cormier, Paul Felder and Shawn Jordan each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night.
Everybody and their mother was talking about Jones and Cormier, and for the most part, the bitter rivals didn’t disappoint. They took home “Fight of the Night” on a card that didn’t offer many exciting scraps.
Jones also retained his light heavyweight title with a lopsided unanimous decision win.
Felder posted the most exciting move of the night with a lights out spinning back-fish on Danny Castillo. That strike was good enough for one “Performance of the Night” check.
Jordan made quick work of Jared Cannonier with a first round knockout to score the other “Performance of the Night.”
UFC 182 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Fight of the Night:
Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier ($50,000/each)
Performances of the Night:
Paul Felder and Shawn Jordan ($50,000/each)
