New UFC Flyweight leads bonus winners from TUF 26 Finale

December 2, 2017

New UFC Flyweight champ Nicco Montano led the bonus winners at the TUF 26 Finale event on Friday night.  The bonus winners were announced post-event.

Montano and Roxanne Modafferi earned the Fight of the Night while Gerald Meerschaert and Brett Johns earned performance bonuses.  Montana won a five-round unanimous decision over the late substitution, Modafferi, to earn the inaugural Flyweight title.  Meerschaert defeated Eric Spicely via TKO after a liverkick.  Johns submitted Joe Soto via calf slicer within 30 seconds of the first round.

Payout Perspective:

The Meerschaert submission was impressive considering the calf-slicer is a rare submission.  The Montano-Modafferi fight was not Griffin-Bonnar but a very good fight to conclude the TUF 26 season.

Got something to say?
