Dana White pitted several promising candidates to give us the card for UFC London. From the ferocity that every contender emitted to the mind-boggling finishes, a perplexed but ecstatic Dana White couldn’t choose 4 fighters to award the performance bonuses. Instead he went a step further and issued a statement that there were going to be 9 performance bonuses.
In what the UFC president considers the Biggest fight night in UFC History, he announced that every fighter who has earned a finish would be walking away $50,000 richer. This meant that fighters: Tom Aspinall, Arnold Allen, Paddy Pimblett, Molly McCann, Ilia Topuria, Makwan Amirkhani, Sergei Pavlovich, Paul Craig, and Muhammad Mokaev, are not only gonna walk a way with a win this time but with a generous Gratuity.
It isn’t uncommon for the UFC to be handing out extra performances awards, sometimes tallying up to 6. But an ecstatic Dana said in a press conference, post UFC London, “Nine bonuses tonight. Every finish. And I couldn’t be happier to do it.”
The batch of hometown favourites exhibited immense talent and strength, which was even agreed upon by Dana White. This card has opened up numerous possible yet prominent fights that Dana has insisted that they will change UFC’s 2022 schedule in order to bring back UFC London as quickly as possible.
Dana White addresses potential “Knockout of the Year” candidate, Molly McCann
As you already know there were 9 nail biting finishes that took place at UFC London but what a lot of people have settled on is how Molly McCann has already secured a spot for Knockout of the Year, this early on. In a spectacular spinning elbow, the Meatball knocked out Luana Carolina who fell to the mat with her eyes open as wide as possible.
Dana White in an interview, when asked about the promising “Knockout of the Year” , says that if this isn’t the winning Knockout, then they are in for even more crazy things this year. He said, “Women normally don’t Knockout another woman like that and that was a vicious Knockout.”
The Knockout tallies McCann wins to two in a row and will be recorded as her first ever Knockout in UFC History.
