UFC FN 51: Andrei Arlovski, Godofredo “Pepey”, Piotr Hallmann and Gleison Tibau Collect Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Andrei Arlovski scored a brutal knockout tonight at UFC Fight Night 51, and not surprisingly, the former heavyweight champ picked up a “Performance of the Night” bonus.
Arlovski sent Antonio “Bigfoot” Silva crashing to the canvas in round one with a right hook, and knocked the #4 ranked heavyweight unconscious with a series of follow up hammer fists.
The #14th ranked Arlovski picked up an extra $50,000 for the award.
The other “POTN” went to Godofredo “Pepey”, who caught Dashon Johnson with a triangle-choke armbar, as the featherweight attempted to slam him in round one.
“Fight of the Night”, and $50K each, went to lightweights Gleison Tibau and Piotr Hallmann for their entertaining fight. Tibau won the fight via split decision.
UFC FN 51 was hosted by the Nilson Nelson Gymnasium in Brasilia, Brazil.
