Following UFC 188, UFC president Dana White awarded Fabricio Werdum (pictured), Yair Rodriguez, Charles Rosa and Patrick Williams each an additional $50,000 for their special performances on Saturday.
It took Williams all of 23 seconds to collect his “Performance of the Night” check. Williams quickly slapped on a guillotine choke on an unsuspecting Alejandro Perez.
Speaking of guillotine chokes, Werdum caught a sloppy Cain Velasquez diving in for a takedown and ended their scrap in shocking fashion to unify the heavyweight title. Werdum also scored a “POTN” check for his efforts.
Rodriguez and Rosa battled for 15 thrilling minutes to earn “Fight of the Night.” Rodriguez also took home a split decision victory.
UFC 188 took place inside Arena Ciudad de Mexico in Mexico City, Mexico.
