Yoel Romero ended UFC Fight Night 70 in highlight reel fashion, and the decorated wrestler picked up an extra $50,000 in doing so.

After taking Lyoto Machida down in round three, Romero quickly knocked out the heralded fighter with a brutal series of elbows. After the card it was announced that Romero earned a “Performance of the Night” bonus.

The card’s other “Performance of the Night” went to middleweight Thiago Santos, not surprisingly, who instantly KO’d Steve Bosse with a head kick not long into their bout.

“Fight of the Night” went to Lorenz Larkin and Santiago Ponzinibbio. The memorable, welterweight bout saw Larkin win by second round, TKO.
