Yair Rodriguez and Jeremy Stephens’ highly-anticipated rematch has earned them the “Fight of the Night” bonus at UFC on ESPN 6.

The two were running it back following their UFC Mexico City main event just a month ago, where the scrap ended in 15 seconds due to a no-contest. Over the course of the bout, both fighters had a tremendous amount of success as both nearly finished each other in the second round, in what could be a “round of the year” contender. Rodriguez ended up edging out a decision, but both fighters earned $50,000 for “Fight of the Night” honors.

Dominick Reyes’ first-round knockout over Chris Weidman earned him a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus. The Californian connected on a left that dropped the former champ and then finished him with ground strikes. The win improved him to 11-0 and netted a second POTN bonus in his UFC career.

Finally, Charles Rosa’s submission of Manny Bermudez gained the other POTN bonus for $50,000. The grappling specialist got ahold of the arm and fetched a verbal submission. It was also his first fight since 2017 and his first win since 2016, while it is his first POTN bonus, but fourth UFC award overall. Advertisement
