Fabricio Werdum

Just when you thought Fabricio Werdum didn’t have enough to celebrate already at UFC 188, the promotion announced that he earned “Performance of the Night”, following his championship win.

Werdum was tapped for the honor, which came with an extra $50,000, for tapping Cain Velasquez with a third round, guillotine choke. With the victory, Werdum became the undisputed heavyweight champ.

The other “Performance of the Night” went to Patrick Williams, who stormed through Alejandro Perez in just 23 seconds. Williams also finished the fight with a guillotine choke.

“Fight of the Night” went to Charles Rosa and Yair Rodriguez, who battled it out for three, wildly entertaining rounds. The latter won the bout via split decision.

UFC 188 went down at the Mexico City Arena.
