UFC Fight Night 180 Bonuses: Body-Shot KO Nets Jessica Andrade $50,000

has proven herself to be dangerous in three different
weight classes, and her successful flyweight debut also proved to
be beneficial for her bank account.

Andrade received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for a
first-round stoppage of Katlyn
in the UFC Fight Night 180 co-main event at the
Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi on Saturday night. One right hook to the
body had Chookagian wincing in pain and Andrade stalked her
opponent to seal her victory with another body blow 4:55 into Round

Elsewhere, Jimmy Crute
earned the card’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” check by
making short work of Modestas
in a featured light heavyweight showdown. Crute set
the stage for the finish by countering a body kick with a powerful
right hand.From there, a right uppercut and left hook put the
former Cage Warriors champ away 2:01 into the first frame.

Earlier, Guram
and Mateusz
garnered “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece
for their competitive lightweight duel. While both men had their
moments, Kutateladze ultimately emerged with a split-decision
triumph after 15 minutes.
