Bryce Mitchell earns bonus for UFC on ESPN 7 twister finish

by Mmaweekly


Following Saturday's UFC on ESPN 7 event at Capital One Arena in Washington D.C., promotion officials announced the recipients of the performance-based bonuses. Rob Font, Bryce Mitchell, Makhmud Muradov, and Ricky Simon took home the $50,000 incentives.

Fight of the Night honors went to bantamweights Font and Simon for their hard-fought battle that kicked off the main card on ESPN. Font won the action-packed fight by unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 30-27) but they both walked away with some extra Christmas money.

Mitchell earned a Performance of the Night award for his first-round submission win over Matt Sayles on the preliminary fight card. Mitchell got the fight to the ground and methodically locked on a rarely seen twister. The submission finished earned him a bonus and will likely add his list to the candidates for 2019 Submission of the Year.
