UFC Vegas 16 bonuses: Four names including Marvin Vettori pick up $50,000


Marvin Vettori and Jack Hermansson put on quite a show as they both earned $50,000 bonuses at UFC Vegas 16

UFC Vegas 16 might have had only eight fights on its cards, thanks to the coronavirus affecting the stars, but it had some great finishes.

Jack Hermansson vs Marvin Vettori was the main event for this card, and it served a treat. The fight went all the five rounds and both men gave it their all.

Five of the eight fights also saw finishes, with some of them being impressive, to say the least. That meant a few bonuses were on their way and here are the winners of $50,000.

UFC Vegas 16 Bonuses

The Performance of the Night bonus went to two names. Jordan Leavitt picked up a quick 22-second win over Matt Wiman thanks to a scary slam which ended in Wiman being knocked out.

This was only the 12th such win in the history of the UFC and Leavitt celebrated wildly. He did have a ton of respect for his rival’s wife but $50,000 would be of huge help to him.

The second fighter to get the performance of the night bonus was Gabriel Benitez who got a TKO win over Justin Jaynes.

Benitez used a great knee to the body to bring down Jaynes and a few punches were enough to get the TKO win.

The Fight of the Might bonus was handed over to Vettori and Hermansson. Both stars earned $50,000 each for going the entire five rounds, and many have suggested that this was one of the best middleweight fights in the history of the UFC.

This was also a huge win for Vettori as he defeated the #4 ranked Hermansson, and the Italian Dream should be in the top five thanks to this win.
