Check out our breakdown of the post-fight bonuses from UFC Fight Night: Holm vs. Correia in Kallang, Singapore. We tell you who won, who didn’t and why.
The Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore was home to a mixed night of fights, with four (T)KOs, two submissions, and six decisions. If you slept in, you missed the best part of the card; the prelims were fantastic for the most part, while the main card was something of a mixed bag, to say the least.
Performances of the Night: Holly Holm and Ulka Sasaki
If you ever needed evidence that “Performance of the Night” actually means “Finish of the Night,” Holm’s bonus award is it. Her KO of Correia was beautiful, but up until that point, the fight was brutal to watch. There was so little action that referee Marc Goddard had to step in and caution both women about their timidity. In the end, the cautious counter-striking game worked out for Holm, who got the victory and an extra $50,000 to go along with it.
Ulka Sasaki also got himself a bonus for an unimpressive performance that ended spectacularly; he was thoroughly dominated by Justin Scoggins for every second of the fight until the last 10, when he managed to sweep “Tank” during a transition and lock in a rear-naked choke in round two. The Japanese fighter earned himself a cool 50 Gs in addition to his win money.
Walt Harris also made a strong case for a bonus during his fight and during his post fight interview, but the UFC decided he’d get fookin nuttin.
Fight of the Night: Li Jingliang vs. Frank Camacho
Li JANGALANG Jingliang and Frank Camacho went to war on the prelims, with Frank rocking the Chinese standout multiple times in the first round, before slowing down in the second and third. Jingliang, on the other hand, didn’t slow down. He just kept on coming, like a terminator, and stalked Camacho, throwing hard jabs and teeps to the body every time his opponent tried to launch any sort of offense. Camacho’s toughness was on full display as he somehow managed to weather a prolonged assault, holding on until the final bell, even if he did lose round three 10-8 on the scorecards. For their efforts and combined testicular fortitude, both men received an extra $50,000 on top of their contracted pay.
