UFC Belem Bonuses: Valentina Shevchenko Banks $50K For Punishing Cachoeira And Athlete Outfitting Pay

UFC Fight Night 125 event happened last night in Belem, Brazil on Feb 3. The main event saw former UFC light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida turned back the clock with a close but impressive split decision win over formerly undefeated opponent Eryk Anders. Both didn’t get any bonus award.

In the co-main event, former UFC bantamweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko authored one of the most lopsided victories of her impressive career thus far, brutally battered newcomer Priscila Cachoeira alive in a flyweight showdown. The bout should have been stopped much earlier, but Shevchenko took care of that herself too, getting the rear-naked choke in the second round. She banks an extra $50,000 for her Performance of the Night.

The other ‘Fight Of The Night’ honors was the entertaining main card opener between Thiago Santos and Anthony Smith. Santos won by second-round TKO after beating Smith with a body shot early in the frame. Smith might not have won the fight, but he did get $50K smackeroos for taking a piping hot plate of whoop-ass, and Thiago Santos got $50k large for winning it.
