UFC 187: Post Fight Bonus Recap

Fight Of The Night: Andrei Arlovski vs. Travis Browne

Performance Bonus: Daniel Cormier and Chris Weidman

• Arlovski and Browne exchanged big shots for almost an entire round before “The Pitbull” was able to finish “Hapa” by TKO. Immediate reaction to the fight on social media included proclamations of “fight of the year candidate” and “best heavyweight round ever.” Arlovski landed 51 significant strikes, which had Browne staggering around the Octagon. In full survival mode, Browne landed a shot that dropped Arlovski, but he wasn’t able to take advantage. Then Arlovski came back with the final barrage before the referee stepped in.

• Cormier secured the vacant UFC light heavyweight title with a third-round rear naked choke submission win over Anthony Johnson.

• Weidman finished the legendary Vitor Belfort by TKO in the very first round with a flurry of big punches and elbow from the mount.

• All four fighters earn an additional $50k.
