UFC 197 Bonuses: Demetrious Johnson, Yair Rodriguez Highlight $50,000 Winners

Spread the word!

Peerless UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson picked up one of his most scintillating finishes in the Octagon when he finished top contender Henry Cejudo in the co-main event of last night’s (Sat., April 23, 2016) UFC 197 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and not surprisingly, he took home one of the card’s $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonuses for his efforts.

It was much deserved, as was the second “Performance of the Night” bonus, which went to Mexican featherweight striking sensation Yair Rodriguez, who blasted Andre Fili with an absolutely monstrous flying roundhouse kick to score one of the most exciting knockouts in UFC history.

Finally, “Fight of the Night” went to Danny Roberts vs. Dominique Steele on the FOX Sports 1 preliminary section of the card, which Roberts won by close decision after an absolutely grueling back-and-forth affair.
