Following “UFC 184: Rousey vs. Zingano,” UFC president Dana White awarded Jake Ellenberger (pictured), Ronda Rousey, Tony Ferguson and Tim Means each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night.
Once again, the UFC opted to bypass “Fight of the Night” and award four “Performacne of the Night” checks instead.
Ellenberger and opponent Josh Koscheck both faced must-win situations with each having lost three straight. Ellenberger lives to fight another day after catching Koscheck with a rare north-south choke for one bonus check.
It took Rousey all of 14 seconds to submit Cat Zingano in tonight’s featured attraction. That performance was more than enough to secure one “Performance of the Night” check.
Ferguson continues to stockpile impressive wins. Gleison Tibau became his latest victim after tapping to a rear-naked choke in the opening round of their scrap.
Means posted a TKO victory over Dhiego Lima for his “Performance of the Night” check.
UFC 184 took place inside Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
Performances of the Night:
Ronda Rousey, Jake Ellenberger, Tony Ferguson and Tim Means ($50,000/each)
