Charles Rosa may not have come out on the winning side in his Octagon debut against Dennis Siver at Fight Night Stockholm, but the 28-year-old certainly didn't walk away empty handed.
Rosa, who took the fight in Sweden on a week's notice, and Siver put on a show in one of the best bouts on the prelims card and were rewarded for their effort, earning fight of the night honors.
Max Holloway and Mike Wilkinson both had spectacular first-round TKO wins to highlight an explosive main card, and each were awarded with performance bonuses for their finishes. All four fighters take home an extra $50k.
UFC EMEA Director of Brand Communications & Event Management David Allen was joined at the post-fight press conference by seven fighters: Rick Story, Max Holloway, Mike Wilkinson, Magnus Cedenblad, Dennis Siver, Nico Musoke, and Charles Rosa.
The announced attendance was 10,026 for a gate of $1.1 million.
