So it should come as little surprise Figueiredo (19-1 MMA, 8-1 UFC) also takes home one of the four post-fight performance bonuses Saturday night. Figueiredo’s technical submission of Benavidez at 4:48 of the opening round earned him a “Performance of the Night” bonus, which means he earns an extra $50,000 for his efforts. It was the second postfight bonus of his UFC career.
Also earning “Performance of the Night” honors was Ariane Lipski, who scored a memorable kneebar submission victory over Luna Carolina on the undercard. The 88-second win for Lipski (13-5 MMA, 2-2 UFC) was her second in a row, and the “POTN” was her first postfight award.
“Fight of the Night” honors went to a lightweight main card bout between Rafael Fizievand Marc Diakese. Fiziev took the unanimous decision after an entertaining 15 minutes of action, but both go home $50K richer. Diakese (14-4 MMA, 5-4 UFC) had his second career postfight bonus, while Fiziev (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) takes home his first.
