Michael Bisping has shocked the world.
Taking his 26th fight on just over two weeks notice, the long-time middleweight veteran in Bisping upset Luke Rockhold in the first round of the main event at UFC 199 from The Forum in Inglewood, California, knocking Rockhold out cold.
Not only did Bisping finally attain the UFC middleweight title, but he also received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus.
Earlier on the main card, ageing veteran Dan “Hendo” Henderson scored a spectacular stoppage victory over Hector Lombard in a bout many thought he would lose as well. The former Olympian was also given a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” Bonus for his efforts.
The opener of the UFC Fight Pass prelims actually took home the “Fight of the Night” honors as Polo Reyes and Dong Hyun Kim went back and forth in an exciting three round affair. In the end, Reyes got the job done via a TKO. Both men were awarded $50,000.
