Anderson (13-3 MMA, 10-3 UFC) had a vicious first-round stoppage of Johnny Walker, the bout waved off at 2:07 of the opening round with Walker out on his feet. Lee (17-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) knocked previously undefeated Gregor Gillespie out cold with a wicked head kick at 2:47 of round one.
And both will leave New York’s Madison Square Garden an extra $50,000 richer for their efforts, as the duo earned “Performance of the Night” bonuses.
There was also, as is custom, also a “Fight of the Night” award. This one went to Stephen Thompson and Vicente Luque. Thompson (15-4-1 MMA, 10-4-1 UFC) rallied from a slow first round to turn it on over the second and third, and Luque (17-7-1 MMA, 10-3 UFC) displayed heart in going the distance under “Wonderboy’s” relentless attack. Both competitors take home $50,000.
