UFC Fight Night 215 Bonuses: Muslim Salikhov, Natalia Silva Among Four POTN Winners

Muslim Salikhov lived up to his “King of Kung Fu” moniker at UFC Fight Night 215.

The Dagestani striker garnered a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award for his third-round stoppage of Andre Fialho in a featured welterweight showdown at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday. Salikhov put his opponent on the defensive with an impressive offensive arsenal before ending the contest with a spinning wheel kick and follow-up punches at the 1:03 mark of Round 3.

Salikhov wasn’t the only one to use a spinning kick to pad his bank account. Natalia Silva earned a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” for a spectacular knockout of Tereza Bleda in the card’s opening bout. The Brazilian weathered a wrestling-heavy approach from her opponent and as her Bleda fatigued, Silva took control with her striking. That culminated in her landing a perfectly-timed spinning back kick to the head as Bleda shot for a takedown, setting the stage for a finishing sequence at the 1:27 mark of Round 3.

Elsewhere, Kennedy Nzechukwu took home a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus after rallying for a second-round technical knockout triumph against Ion Cutelaba in the evening’s makeshift main event. The 6-foot-5 Fortis MMA product rocked Cutelaba with a knee and sealed his victory with a barrage of punches 62 seconds into the period.

Finally, Jack Della Maddalena received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” check for his third consecutive finish in the Octagon. The Aussie overwhelmed Danny Roberts with a salvo of punches near the fence for a technical knockout victory 3:24 into the opening frame of their featured welterweight encounter.
