Khabib leads UFC 242 bonus winners

September 7, 2019

Khabib Nurmagomedov led the bonus winners for UFC 242 from Abu Dhabi on Saturday.  The lightweight champion solidified his status as the promotion’s top fighter at 155 with his 3rd round submission of interim champion Dustin Poirier.

In addition, Ottman Azaitar, Belal Muhammad and Muslim Salikhov earned the other $50,000 bonuses for their performances.  There was no Fight of the Night.

Azaitar earned his bonus with a KO of Teemu Packalen in the first round.  Belal Muhammad defeated Takashi Sato via third round submission.  Finally, Salikhov KO’d Nordine Taleb to earn his bonus.

Payout Perspective:

There was no attendance and gate announced after the event although from the looks of the event, it was a sell-out as most fans went home happy seeing Khabib get his hand raised.
