Tony Ferguson and Lando Vannata put on a show worthy of “Fight of the Night” at UFC Fight Night 91 Wednesday night.
And that is exactly what happened, as the two were given $50,000 each for their performances. Ferguson won via second round submission after surviving an onslaught by Vannata in the first round.
John Lineker, who destroyed Michael McDonald in the main event, and Louis Smolka each earned “Performance of the Night” bonuses.
The event, which took place for the first time from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, drew 5,671 fans inside the Denny Sanford Premier Center for a live gate of $381,945.
