UFC On ESPN 13: Fight Night Bonuses

There were no fans in Abu Dhabi for UFC on ESPN 13 on July 15. As a result, there was no gate for the event on Yas Island

A mid-week “Fight island” event saw several fighters step up to earn big wins. Although the main event delivered, it did not earn any of the performance bonuses.

“Fight of the Night” went to the duo of Mounir Lazzez and Abdul Razak Alhassan. Both put on a clinic for three rounds, setting the tone fo the night. Striking was key to start and the two would throw vicious shots at one another. Unfortunately, Alhassan missed weight before the fight, resulting in him not being able to take home the $50,000 prize. Lazzez would end up winning via unanimous decision.

Part of the “Performance of the Night” bonus went to Khamzat Chimaev. Compared to UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov, Chimaev would land 72 strikes in the first round, while John Phillips only landed one. Chimaev would use the ground game to his advantage and would take the fight following a D’Arce Choke.

The other “Performance of the Night” went to Lerone Murphy, who punished Ricardo Ramos in round one for the TKO win. Additionally, Modestas Bukauskas was able to earn an extra increase in his salary following a dominant win over Andreas Michailiidis. A barrage of elbows forced the referee to step in when Michailiidis couldn’t find his corner.
