UFC 191: Post-fight bonus recap

 

Fight Of The Night: Francisco Rivera vs. John Lineker

Performance Bonuses: Anthony Johnson and Raquel Pennington

 

• Raquel Pennington gets an extra gift to celebrate turning 27 years old after surviving an early back-and-forth against Jessica Andrade before taking control in Round 2 and earning a submission victory via rear naked choke with two seconds left before a third stanza.

• Anthony 'Rumble' Johnson threw bombs from the start of his fight with Jimi Manuwa and never stopped, dropping his rival just seconds into the second round and going full blast before referee Jason Herzog intervened.

• Francisco Rivera and John Lineker's clash lasted only a few minutes, but it was definitely the fight to remember of the night. The duo threw 100 strikes in just over 2 minutes before Rivera fell to the ground, allowing Lineker to put him a guillotine choke that forced a quick submission.

• All four fighters earn an additional $50k
