Niko Price almost never goes into the scorecards and now he ’s being rewarded for his efforts.

Because of his magnificent first-round knock out of Tim Means, Cost was awarded one of those evening’s $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses at UFC Wichita on Saturday.

As expected, Price and Means went at eachother, with Cost landing the heavier shots at first before being slammed to the mat by Means. The ground-fighting was inconclusive and when the actions returned to the feet, Cost used Means’s aggression against himstopping him with a counter right hook and ground-and-pound with 10 seconds remaining in around one.

This had been the third Performance of this night time incentive for Cost who has to go to an option in eight appearances.

One Other Performance of this Night Time bonus went to Beneil Dariush for his second-round entry of Drew Dober. The streaking Dober hadn’t any answers for Dariush on the mat and also the black belt took his time maneuvering to bracket and finishing with a triangle armbar as Dober scrambled to flee the position. This really is actually the next Performance of the Nighttime for Dariush, a veteran.

Main occasion heavyweights Junior dos Santos and Derrick Lewis lived up to this charging, trading large strikes for about a round-and-a-half to Deserve the Wichita Fight of the Night award. This had been dos Santos who landed the more telling blows, seriously wounding Le with a spin kick to your system in around one and finishing the job with an over hand right to the mind in two.

Dos Santos has earned six fight night bonuses from his career and it is currently tied to Le and Cain Velasquez for its maximum knock-outs in research history.
