Whittaker finished Brunson in the opening round of the card’s main event, by rocking the powerful wrestler with a headkick, and then finishing him with punches. After the card, it was announced that Whittaker earned $50,000 for a “Performance of the Night” bonus, and that the middleweights had also earned “Fight of the Night”. As a result, the 25 year-old made an extra $100K.
The other “POTN” went to Tyson Pedro, who submitted Khalil Rountree in the first round with a rear-naked-choke.
