Marina Rodriguez is back in bonus land for the first time since 2021.
The 36-year-old strawweight contender was one of four bonus winners at UFC Vegas 79, cashing an extra $50,000 for her brutal victory over Michelle Waterson-Gomez on Saturday’s main card. Rodriguez earned Performance of the Night honors for her second-round stoppage of Waterson-Gomez, which snapped a two-fight losing streak.
The evening’s final two bonuses went to Tim Means and Andre Fialho, both of whom earned Fight of the Night honors for their welterweight brawl on the preliminary card. In a back-and-forth bout, Means defeated Fialho via third-round TKO.
All bonuses were $50,000.
