Thales Leites may have absorbed some really heavy shots while doing it, but the middleweight earned two bonuses at UFC 183 for his thrilling win over Tim Boetsch.

Leites weathered a brutal storm of punches from Boetsch in round two, and choked out the former light-heavyweight with a nicely executed, arm-triangle-choke.

As a result, Leites earned a “Performance of the Night” bonus for the memorable finish, as well as another $50K for “Fight of the Night”.

Of course, Boetsch also scored an extra $5OK for the role he played in the fantastic fight.

The card’s other “POTN” went to Thiago Alves, who came back from a rough, opening round and put away Jordan Mein with a cracking, body kick.

UFC 183 was hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
