The Pettis family is sitting flush right now, as both Anthony and Sergio Pettis earned fight night bonuses last night at UFC 181.
Anthony Pettis defended the lightweight title by tapping Gilbert Melendez with a beautifully, timed, guillotine choke at the event, and earned a “Performance of the Night” for the win. The award also comes with a check for $50,000.
Sergio Pettis, on the other hand, outscored Matt Hobar for the unanimous decision win, and the bantamweights earned “Fight of the Night” for the memorable battle. Each man also earned $50,000.
And, last but not least, Josh Samman received the other “Performance of the Night”, for his jaw dropping, head kick KO of Eddie Gordon. Mr. Samman also collected $50K.
UFC 181 went down at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
