UFC FN 53: Max Holloway Among Featherweights to Earn Post-Fight Bonus

UFC

UFC Fight Night 53 was a lucrative card for several featherweight fighters, as all of the event’s post-fight bonuses went to 145’ers.

In the co-main event, Max Holloway quickly bombed out Alex Corassani with a flurry of punches, and the Hawaiian fighter picked up a “Performance of the Night” and $50 grand for the win.

The card’s other “POTN” went to featherweight Mike Wilkinson, who handed Niklas Backstrom his first defeat by dusting him with a ferocious right hook. Wilkinson also collected $50K for the knockout win.

And “Fight of the Night” went to two more 145’ers, as Dennis Siver and Charles Rosa picked up the honor. Siver worked his way to a unanimous decision victory in the fight, which featured spirited exchanges on the ground and the feet.

Saturday’s card went down at the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. If you missed it, you can catch up on the prelim action here and the main card by heading here.
