Gillespie Earns $100K Check Due to Ferreira’s Weight Miss – MMA Root



It was a two-round story about Gregor Gillespie and Diego Ferreira at the UFC on ESPN 24.

This type of back-and-forth action earned him the slightest spot in Saturday Night Fight at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, but Gillespie took home the $ 100,000 bonus due to Ferreira’s weight loss the day before. While Ferreira took the best from their enemy in the first five minutes, it was Gillespie who had the last laugh, as his pace wreaked havoc on Ferreira at the rate of a TKO 4:51 break in lap 2.

Elsewhere, Alex Morono’s brief warning attempt proved quite lucrative, as he received a $ 50,000 “Performance of the Night” check for a technical knock-out by Donald Serrone in the first round of welterweight. Moron threw the “Cowboy” with a huge gauge over his arm, and then turned on the enemy wheel fence, forcing the 4:40 stop in Round 1.

Finally, newcomer Carlston Lindsay Harris had an unforgettable Octagon debut, winning the $ 50,000 “Performance of the Night” award thanks to Christian Aguilera’s submission to welterweight. Harris injured his enemy during an exchange, was disbanded and then locked in a drowning by Anaconda. Aguilera went unconscious 2:52 in Round 1.
