By FCF Staff
Carla Esparza had a big night at the TUF 20 Finale, as not only did she become the UFC’s first strawweight champ, she took home a fight night bonus as well.
Esparzas tapped out Rose Namajunas with a third round, rear-naked-choke and collected a “Performance of the Night” bonus for her efforts. The new strawweight champ also scored an extra $50,000.
The other “POTN” went to lightweight Yancy Medeiros, who submitted Joe Proctor with an opening round, guillotine choke.
“Fight of the Night” went to strawweights Jessica Penne and Randa Markos for their back-and-forth scrap. Penne won the bout via split decision.
The TUF 20 Finale took place at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.
