UFC Vegas 34 bonuses: Ignacio Bahamondes wins $50,000 for highlight-reel knockout

MMA Fighting

With the preliminary card of UFC Vegas 34 heavy on finishes, all but one of the performance bonuses went to the competitors that battled it out before the main card.

Ignacio Bahamondes was a no-brainer for a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus with his wheel kick knockout of Roosevelt Roberts in the final seconds of their meeting.

UFC Vegas 34 took place at UFC APEX in Las Vegas. The event streamed live on ESPN+.

The two bouts that followed Bahamondes’ amazing performance also were awarded extra $50,000 checks for finish wins. William Knight stopped Fabio Cherant moving backward and picked up his first performance, while Josiane Nunes earned her first UFC win with a first-round knockout of Bea Malecki.

The final bonus went to main card performer Alexandre Pantoja, who submitted Brandon Royval with a second-round rear-naked choke in one of the most spirited fights of the night. Afterward, Pantoja called for a third fight with flyweight champ Brandon Moreno, against whom he owns two wins.

There was no “Fight of the Night” bonus awarded by the UFC.
