Bektic, Jacare win UFC Charlotte bonuses with big 1st-round knockouts
Both Mirsad Bektic and Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza saw their emphatic stoppage victories rewarded with an extra $50,000 on Saturday.
The pair took Performance of the Night honors for their first-round stoppages at UFC on FOX 27 in Charlotte, where Bektic rebounded from his first career loss with a nasty knockout of fellow featherweight Godofredo Pepey on the evening’s prelims, while Souza cracked middleweight Derek Brunson with a head kick and follow-up punches to win their headlining rematch via the same method.
Welterweights Drew Dober and Frank Camacho also took some extra cabbage home for their Fight of the Night, a three-round slugfest the former won by unanimous decision.
