Earlier today (Sat. November 16, 2019) UFC Sao Paulo took place from the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The Brazil crowd turned out for the event with an attendance number of 10,344. No gate was announced – as is normal for Brazilian events – but the show was declared a sell-out. There were also some well-deserved post-fight bonuses handed out.
First, on the preliminary card, Randy Brown pulled off a spectacular second-round submission win over Warlley Alves, locking in a triangle choke. The finish was worth a Performance Of The Night bonus worth $50,000.
Next, Ricardo Ramos also picked up a submission victory on the preliminary card, submitting Luiz Eduardo Garagorri in the first round with a rear-naked choke. Ramos also takes home an extra $50,000 for a Performance Of The Night bonus.
James Krause also earned a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus for his featured preliminary bout victory. Krause but Sergio Moraes away in the third round with a late knockout. The finish came with just seconds left in the final round off of a beautiful counter.
And finally, Charles Oliveira, the all-time leader in submissions in UFC history, this time got the job done with his hands. Oliveira only needed one round to knock out opponent Jared Gordon, earning a $50,000 Performance Of The Night bonus as well.
