UFC Fight Night 191 Bonuses: Aspinall, Pimblett, McCann, Kim Pocket $50K



Tom Aspinall’s climb in the heavyweight division continued on Saturday, and it also included a $50,000 bonus for his efforts.

Aspinall earned a “Performance of the Night” check thanks to his first-round stoppage of Sergey Spivak in the UFC Fight Night 191 co-main event at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. An elbow from the Team Kaobon product sent Spivak to the canvas, and Aspinall sealed his victory with follow-up punches 2:30 into Round 1.

Elsewhere, former Cage Warriors Fighting Championship title holder Paddy Pimblett enjoyed a memorable Octagon debut, earning a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award by virtue of a technical knockout win over Luigi Vendramini at lightweight. After being rocked and taken down early in the bout, Pimblett recovered and swarmed with a barrage of punches on the feet to force a stoppage at the 4:25 mark of Round 1.

Finally, Molly McCann and Ji Yeon Kim shared “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their preliminary flyweight scrap. While Kim enjoyed some success at range with her striking, McCann did a good job closing the distance and pressuring her adversary with hooks on the inside, ultimately allowing “Meatball” to secure a unanimous decision triumph.
