Tim Boetsch, Alan Jouban, Seth Baczynski and Thiago Tavares all took home $50,000 bonuses at UFC Fight Night “Bader vs. St. Preux” on Saturday.
Tavares netted one of the $50,000 “Performance of the Night” awards for his first-round rear-naked choke victory of Robbie Peralta at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. The Brazilian controlled the fight on the floor before finally finishing the festivities with by taking Peralta’s back and sinking in the submission.
For Boetsch, his $50,000 “Performance” bonus came by way of a second-round technical knockout finish against Brad Tavares. The scrap started off with Tavares getting the best of “The Barbarian,” but with a little hometown support, Boetsch was able to rally for the come-from-behind victory.
In the “Fight of the Night,” Jouban survived his first appearance in the Octagon in fine fashion, dispelling of nine-fight UFC veteran Baczynski via vicious knockout in the opening frame. The Black House MMA product ate some shots en route to the victory, but was able to push his winning streak to three straight.
