Here’s Who Banked An Extra $50K For Their Performance At UFC Vegas 36
A few fighters went home with some extra cash after UFC Vegas 36.
One of the English fighters, who earned an extra $50,000 for the performance, is Paddy Pimblett. He successfully completed his debut against Luigi Vendramini, serving a brutal knockout under a barrage of punches in the first round of the lightweight fight.
Pimblett made his UFC debut after winning the lightweight title in the Cage Warriors promotion.
Tom Aspinall also claimed a Performance of the Night check, which made him emotional. He defeated Sergey Spivak in the first round via brutal knockout. He dropped him with a huge elbow from the clinch and finished him on the ground.
The 28-year-old earned his fourth victory in a row in the UFC and seventh in the MMA. He won all his fights earlier via knockout or submissions.
Flyweights Molly McCann and Ji Yeon Kim were the last fighters awarded a bonus. Both women scored an additional $50,000 for their Fight of the Night showdown; McCann won via unanimous decision.
