Israel Adesanya is now the undisputed middleweight champion and unsurprisingly his performance was more than worthy of a bonus.

With a spectacular second-round finish of Robert Whittaker in the main event of UFC 243

Yorgan De Castro. The 243 Fight of the Night award went to Brad Riddell and Jamie Mullarkey.

In seven UFC appearances, Adesanya has collected six fight night bonuses.

De Castro, a heavyweight who recently earned a UFC contract on the Contender Series, had the fastest finish of the evening, blasting Justin Tafa with a right hand 2:10 into the main card opener.

On the ESPN2 preliminary portion of the show, Riddell and Mullarkey made the most of their UFC debuts, going back-and-forth for two rounds before engaging in a wild and bloody brawl in the third that had Marvel Stadium roaring. Riddell would go on to claim a unanimous decision victory.
