UFC Vegas 26 bonuses: Alex Morono wins $50k for TKO of Donald Cerrone – MMA Root

The fight paid off in a short time at UFC Vegas 26 to welterweight veteran Alex Morono, who received a $ 50,000 bounty for his victory over Donald Cerrone.

Morono stopped Cerrone by TKO as a co-headliner for Saturday’s bout at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. He appeared before the Octagon’s veterinarian shortly after Cerrone’s originally planned opponent, Diego Sanchez, was removed from the fight.

Two other fights that ended with a finish were also awarded bonuses. The Fight of the Night awards went to Gregor Gillespie and Diego Ferreira, who were involved in an insane commotion that was initially prone to Ferreira before Gillespie took over and earned a TKO in the second round. Both were awarded bonuses of $ 50,000.

And in the first round of UFC Vegas 26, Carlston Harris delivered Anaconda’s rare choke hold, putting Christian Aguilera to sleep in the first round.

UFC Vegas 26 saw a flyweight bout between Marina Rodriguez and Michelle Waterson, who quickly headlined five rounds. Rodriguez defeated Waterson via unanimous decision in a superb punching attack.
