The Fight of the Night was awarded to the main event women’s strawweight title bout between Rose Namajunas and Jessica Andrade. After domination from Namajunas in the opening round, Andrade slammed Namajunas in the second to knock her out and win the title. Andrade also won a performance bonus for her win.
The other performance bonus went to Warlley Alves, who knocked out Sergio Moraes in the third round of their preliminary bout.
Each bonus is worth $50,000, which means Andrade walks away with $100,000 total in bonus money.
