Mounir Lazzez, Khamzat Chimaev, Lerone Murphy and Modestas Bukauskas walked away with $50,000 bonus checks for their work at UFC on ESPN 13 on Wednesday night.
Lazzez’s welterweight duel with Abdul Razak Alhassan received “Fight of the Night” honors, but only Lazzez, who won via unanimous decision in a featured contest, was eligible for a bonus on account of Alhassan missing weight on Tuesday. As a result, the promotion handed out three other “Performance of the Night” awards.
Murphy took home a “Performance of the Night” bonus by making short work of Ricardo Ramos in a preliminary featherweight scrap. The Englishman took his foe down and ultimately vanquished the Brazilian with heavy ground-and-pound at the 4:18 mark of Round 1.
Chimaev impressed in his Octagon debut, earning a performance bonus for a second-round stoppage of John Phillips at middleweight. The Allstars Training Center member overwhelmed his opponnent in the opening frame before securing a brabo choke for the tapout 72 seconds into Round 2.
Finally, ex-Cage Warriors champ Bukauskas captured the card’s final performance award by stopping Andreas Michailidis in a light heavyweight prelim. Bukauskas unleashed a barrage of elbows to the side of the head upon defending a takedown late in Round 1, and Michailidis was deemed unable to continue prior to the second stanza.
