T.J. Dillashaw, Yancy Medeiros, Carlos Diego Ferreira and Ramsey Nijem each too home $50,000 bonuses for their performances at Saturday’s UFC 177 event.
Ferreira and Nijem earned the “Fight of the Night,” while Dillashaw and Medeiros each won “Performance of the Night” honors.
UFC officials announced the winners at the night’s post-event news conference.
Dillashaw (7-2) and Joe Soto (0-1) went five rounds in the main event, with Dillashaw successfully defending his title against Soto, a UFC newcomer who took the title fight on a day’s notice.
Medeiros (1-2) finished Damon Jackson (0-1 UFC) with a reverse guillotine choke in the second round.
Ferreira (2-0) and Nijem (5-4) seemed even in the first round, but in the second round, Ferreira took over and knocked out his opponent.
