UFC Belem Bonuses

The UFC’s  debut in Belem yielded big gains for Valentina Shevchenko, Anthony Smith, and a pair of Brazilian fighters.

Shevchenko showed dominance in her victory over Priscila Cachoeira in the co-main event of UFC Belem on Saturday, capping off the win with a second-round rear-naked choke that earned her a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus, the second of her career.

Originally reported by MMAFighting.com, the other Performance of the Night check went to Iuri Alcantara for his 1:06 pummeling of Joe Soto on the preliminary portion of the card. A veteran of 17 UFC fights, Alcantara’s three bonus wins have come in his past five appearances.

Smith and Thiago Santos were rewarded with the Fight of the Night bonus for a violent main card opener that featured a back-and-forth first round. In the second period, Santos put Smith away with a kick to the body followed by ground and pound. “Marreta” earns his third UFC post-fight bonus, while Smith cashes in for a second time.
