Bobby Green ended UFC Vegas 80 with a bang and a well-deserved bonus.
“King” needed just 33 seconds to defeat Grant Dawson by knockout in Saturday’s UFC Vegas 80 main event, a win that snapped Dawson’s nine-fight unbeaten streak. At the evening’s post-fight press conference, UFC CEO Dana White announced that Green was one of the recipients of a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his work.
Excluding a no-contest against Jared Gordon this past April, this is the third straight fight that has ended with a bonus for Green. He earned a performance bonus for a third-round submission of Tony Ferguson at UFC 291, and he and Drew Dober both earned an extra $50,000 for a Fight of the Night effort that Dober won via knockout last December.
