Ronda RouseyNo one could hold a candle to such a finish, but in lieu of a Fight of the Night bonus, the UFC issued three other individual performance bonuses.

Jake Ellenberger impressed with his first victory in his last four fights, submitting Josh Koscheck with a north-south choke to earn one of those three additional Performance of the Night awards.

Joining Rousey and Ellenberger in the bonus money were Tony Ferguson, who submitted longtime veteran Gleison Tibau, and Tim Means, who TKO’d Dhiego Lima. Both of those finishes came in the first round.
