UFC Vegas 64 post-fight bonuses: 4 earn ‘Performance of the Night’ honors in finish-heavy night


Four fighters earned an additional $50,000 bonus at UFC Vegas 64 on a night heavy with finishes.

All but two of the 11 fights on Saturday’s card failed to go the distance, and so “Performance of the Night” bonuses nudged out a “Fight of the Night” bonus at UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

Among the people who will take home the bonus according to the UFC :

  • Neil Magny, who set a record for most UFC welterweight wins with a submission of Daniel Rodriguez in the co-main event.
  • Mario Bautista was penalized for Benito Lopez’s pillar-to–post beating. This occurred before the brutal submission to the triangle-armbar on prelims.
  • Polyana Viana was awarded a knockout in the first round (announced TKO of Jinh Hu Frey) in her fourth UFC first round finish.
  • Tamares Vidal, who got down in her cage walk and then stopped Ramona Pasqual cold with a flying knee in the prelim opener.

UFC Vegas 64 was headlined by a strawweight fight between Amanda Lemos and Marina Rodriguez and aired on ESPN+. In an upset, Lemos took home a third-round TKO with a flurry of punches but did not collect a disclosed bonus.
