For scoring the quick win, and the “POTN” honor, Mir picked up an extra $50,000.
Other “POTN” winners included Sam Alvey, Matt Dwyer and Marion Reneau.
The middleweight Alvey KO’d Cezar Ferreira in round one, and the welterweight Dwyer took out William Macario with a highlight reel, “Superman” punch.
Reneau, on the other hand, earned the bonus for tapping out bantamweight Jessica Andrade with a triangle-choke.
