Poirier and Aldo top UFC on Fox 30 bonuses

July 28, 2018

The UFC announced the bonuses for UFC on Fox 30 in Calgary.  Dustin Poirier and Jose Aldo drew $50,000 bonuses for their stoppages during the main card of tonight’s event.

Fight of the Night was awarded to Ross Pearson and John Makdessi.  Makdessi defeated Pearson by unanimous decision.

Payout Perspective:

It was a good night for the co-main and main event on Fox.  Poirier and Eddie Alvarez put on a great fight with The Diamond getting a right hand and a knee to the body that stunned Alvarez.  Despite attempts to fight back, Alvarez succumbed to Poirier’s flurry.  There was a controversial 12-6 elbow thrown by Alvarez which broke up a top position for Eddie which will be talked about as something that could have turned the fight around.  Aldo returned to his old self with a vicious body shot which dropped Jeremy Stephens and eventually ended his night.  Although the stoppage may have been premature, it was a good sign for Aldo who was written off after a losing streak.
