UFC FN 56: Ovince St. Preux, Leandro Silva, Tim Gorman and Thomas Almeida Collect Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Ovince St. Preux recorded the biggest win of his career tonight at UFC Fight Night 56, and took home a “Performance of the Night” bonus in doing so.
St. Preux ended his headlining fight with “Shogun” Rua in just 34 seconds, as he finished the former light-heavyweight champ with a crunching hook and follow up shots. “OSP” also earned an extra $50K for the bonus.
The other “POTN” went to lightweight Leandro Silva, who tapped out Charlie Brenneman with a first round, rear-naked-choke.
“Fight of the Night” went to bantamweights Thomas Almeida and Tim Gorman for their entertaining slugfest. Almeida won the bout via unanimous decision.
UFC FN 56 was hosted by Uberlandia, Brazil.
