UFC Mexico City bonuses

September 22, 2019

UFC Mexico City took place Saturday night with a Fight of the Night featuring strawweights Carla Esparza and Alexa Grasso.

The former inaugural women’s strawweight champion earned a majority decision in the entertaining fight that earned $50,000 for each.  Additionally, featherweight Steven Peterson’s spinning backfist of Martin Bravo earned him a Performance Bonus and maybe a KO of the year.  Also, Paul Craig earned a $50,000 bonus with a submission of Vinicius Moreira.

The main event of UFC Mexico City was disappointing after an incidental eye poke of Jeremy Stephens by Yair Rodriguez with just seconds into the first round of their fight.  Fans through objects including beer at the Octagon as they were dissatisfied with the stoppage.
