UFC FN 58: Lyoto Machida, Erick Silva, Vitor Miranda and Renan Barao Collect Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Lyoto Machida needed just over a minute to win tonight’s UFC Fight Night 58 main event, and not surprisingly, the Brazilian star earned one of the card’s “Performance of the Night” bonuses.
Machida finished CB Dollaway with a vicious body kick and follow up punches in just 62 seconds, and earned a “POTN” and $50K for doing so.
Erick Silva also took home a “POTN” award, for quickly choking out welterweight Mike Rhodes with an arm-triangle-choke.
Former bantamweight champ Renan Barao was also tapped for a “Performance of the Night” bonus, for submitting Mitch Gagnon with the same technique in round three.
Another “POTN” went to Vitor Miranda, who put away middleweight Jake Collier with a head kick and punches late in round one.
UFC FN 58 was hosted by Barueri, Brazil.
