Eric Spicely’s bank account was hurting heading into UFC Greenville. After putting on an entertaining performance in a loss to Deron Winn, “Zebrinha” has a little more financial breathing room.

Spicely received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award at the conclusion of Saturday’s card at Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville, S.C. While Winn captured a unanimous verdict in his Octagon debut, Spicely was a willing dance partner as the contest featured numerous spirited standup exchanges.

Spicely accepted the middleweight bout on short notice – and apparently for good reason.

“My bank account was [$-230],” Spicely wrote on Twitter. “I’m f—king juiced right now.”



Winn set a UFC middleweight record with 169 significant strikes landed in victory. Spicely, meanwhile, landed 108, including several solid clinch knees that rattled his opponent. Spicely, a CES MMA veteran, returned to the Octagon on Saturday after going 2-4 during a previous UFC stint.

The bout also drew praise from UFC president Dana White:
