According to a story filed by MMA Fighting, Curtis Millender not only earned a victory over veteran Thiago Alves, but also the other Performance of the Night bonus for dropping Alves with a knee during the second round of their fight.
Fight of the Night would go to the featherweights division battle between Brandon Davis and Steven Peterson Davis would take the win, earning his first win in the UFC, while Peterson would take the fall in his UFC debut. But both fighters take home $50K bonuses for their efforts.
