If you watched UFC Fight Night 62 you won’t be surprised to hear that Gilbert Burns picked up a “Performance of the Night” honor, following the card.
The lightweight and renowned grappler appeared to be on his way to defeat, but in round three, Burns took Alex Oliveira to the mat and worked his way into a fight ending, armbar.
Burns picked up an extra $50,000 with the award.
Three other “POTN” awards went to Kevin Souza, Godofredo “Pepey” and Fredy Serrano.
Souza KO’d Katsunori Kikuno in the opening round, and Serano stopped Bently Syler in round three.
“Pepey”, meanwhile, tapped Andre Fili out with a highlight reel, triangle choke in round one.
UFC FN 62 went down in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
