Ryan Spann got by for another $50,000



The UFC handed out four post-fight bonuses after Saturday’s card, including a big submission in the co-main event.

After UFC on ESPN 36, four fighters took home an additional $50,000 for their performances in Las Vegas. Check out the winners below.

Fight of the Night: Katlyn Chookagian vs. Amanda Ribas

Former women’s flyweight title challenger Katlyn Chookagian (18-4 MMA, 11-4 UFC) admitted after the fight that she received a lot of flak for making many decisions. But in her 15-minute battle with Amanda Ribas (11-3 MMA, 5-2 UFC), which went up a division, few complained thanks to the back-and-forth action. After three rounds, of which both fighters were throwing leather and screaming on the stretch, Chookagian made a split decision and called for another title shot.

Performance of the night: Manuel Torres

Manuel Torres (13-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) promised a knockout in his UFC debut, and he delivered when he torched Frank Camacho (22-10 MMA, 2-6 UFC) in the first round with a big two-hit combination. The stoppage came at 3:27 of the first lap. Camacho was coming back from a nearly two-year layoff and was competitive until Torres fired him.

Performance of the Night: Ryan Spann

Ryan Spann (20-7 MMA, 6-2 UFC) said this week he had to go out of his own way to beat Ion Cutelaba (16-7-1 MMA, 5-6-1 UFC). That’s exactly what he did. Spann submitted Cutelaba with a first-round guillotine choke after a very quick back-and-forth in their light heavyweight co-main event.
