Although it may have been a card that was unheralded thanks to visa issues causing competitors from The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) Brazil 4 to be held back from fighting, the main card of last night’s (Sat., June 27, 2015) UFC Fight Night 70 from the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida, delivered in a big way.

All four of the night’s post-fight bonuses, which were announced at the post-fight presser, came from the main bouts, with the first $50,000 ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus not surprisingly going to Yoel Romero for his third round starching of Lyoto Machida in the main event (video highlights here).

The second ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus went to Thiago Santos for his absolutely vicious head kick knockout of the debuting Steve Bosse that had the former pro hockey player stiff and out cold (watch it right here).

The two “Fight of the Night” bonuses were shared by Lorenz Larkin and Santiago Ponzinibbio, who threw down in back-and-forth affair in the co-main event, where ‘Monsoon’ eventually overtook with his power Muay Thai to pick up his second straight knockout (video highlights right here).
