UFC 163: McCall, Santos, Perosh and Moraes Pick Up Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Not only did Anthony Perosh rebound from his seven second, knockout loss to Ryan Jimmo in triumphant style tonight at UFC 163, but the light-heavyweight picked up an extra $50,000 for his performance.
Perosh floored fellow BJJ black belt Vinny Magalhaes with a right hand just seconds into their tilt, and finished off the renowned grappler with follow up punches in just 14 seconds. As a result, the Australian fighter picked “Knockout of the Night” for the highlight reel win.
“Fight of the Night” went to flyweights Ian McCall and Iliarde Santos for their entertaining, back-and-forth bout, which saw McCall pick up the unanimous decision win.
“Submission of the Night” and an extra 50K went to welterweight Sergio Moraes, for his beautifully executed, triangle-choke finish of Neil Magny.
UFC 163 was hosted by the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
