UFC 235 went down live on pay-per-view (PPV) from Las Vegas, Nevada’s T-Mobile Arena last night (Sat. March 2, 2019).
Opening up the ESPN prelims was a welterweight bout between longtime UFC veteran Diego Sanchez and Mickey Gall. Sanchez absolutely mauled Gall en-route to a second-round TKO win. Sanchez’s masterful performance earned him a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus. Also, Johnny Walker continues to make strides at 205 pounds.
He laid waste to Misha Cirkunov with a flying knee in the first round of their bout on the ESPN prelims. It only took the young Brazilian 36 seconds to get the job done. He will also take home a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus. And finally, Cody Garbrandt and Pedro Munhoz put on an absolute slugfest.
The bantamweights opened up the UFC 235 main card. A real-life game of Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots broke out early, which Munhoz ultimately won with a knockout. The amazing back-and-forth resulted in Fight Of The Night honors for Garbrandt and Munhoz, who will take home $50,000 each.
