UFC Fight Night 180 Bonuses: Body-Shot KO Nets Jessica Andrade $50,000

By Tristen Critchfield Oct 18, 2020

Jessica Andrade has proven herself to be dangerous in three different weight classes, and her successful flyweight debut also proved to be beneficial for her bank account.

Andrade received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for a first-round stoppage of Katlyn Chookagian in the UFC Fight Night 180 co-main event at the Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night. One right hook to the body had Chookagian wincing in pain and Andrade stalked her opponent to seal her victory with another body blow 4:55 into Round 1.

Elsewhere, Jimmy Crute earned the card’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” check by making short work of Modestas Bukauskas in a featured light heavyweight showdown. Crute set the stage for the finish by countering a body kick with a powerful right hand.From there, a right uppercut and left hook put the former Cage Warriors champ away 2:01 into the first frame.

Earlier, Guram Kutateladze and Mateusz Gamrot garnered “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their competitive lightweight duel. While both men had their moments, Kutateladze ultimately emerged with a split-decision triumph after 15 minutes.
