Four fighters earned an extra $50K for over achieving inside of the Tauron Arena Krakow earlier today during UFC Fight Night 64.
Fight of the night bonus checks were written out to Mirko ‘Cro Cop’ Filipovic and Gabriel Gonzaga. For Cro Cop, this would be his first fight of the night bonus in 11 UFC appearances. It was Gonzaga’s 2nd in 20 showings as a member of the UFC heavyweight division.
Performance of the night bonuses were handed out to Maryna Moroz and Leon Edwards for their respective first round finishes.
Moroz, the biggest underdog on the card, made it look easy against “Dr. Kneevil” herself Joanne Calderwood. The Ukrainian submission specialist made a name for herself by submitting the TUF 20 star and following it up with a call out of current strawweight champion and Polish hero Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
BAMMA vet Leon Edwards did not want to go back to the judges after losing a decision of the split variety in his UFC debut last fall in Brazil. For his sophomoric effort he’d need only 8 seconds to KO and likely remove Seth Baczynski from the active UFC roster.
Below you will find the full replay of the post-fight presser starring a couple of the aforementioned victors and some of the top fighters that mixed it up in Krakow, Poland earlier today.
