Jones extended his record reign by working his way to a unanimous decision win over Cormier, and while doing so, picked up an extra $50,000 for “FOTN”. Cormier will also head back to AKA with an additional $50K.
Of course, one of the “Performance of the Night” awards went to lightweight Paul Felder, for his jaw dropping, spinning back fist knockout of Danny Castillo.
The second “POTN” was awarded to heavyweight Shawn Jordan, who took Jared Cannonier out with a series of punches in the opening round.
Both the “POTN” winners collected an extra $50 grand.
UFC 182 was hosted by the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
