UFC on FOX 15: Luke Rockhold Scores Bonus After Impressive Win

Luke Rockhold

Considering Luke Rockhold tapped out one of the sport’s greatest fighters to date at UFC on FOX 15, it shouldn’t be surprising to hear he won a “Performance of the Night.”

Rockhold rocked Lyoto Machida in the opening round with ground-and-pound strikes, and in round two, he finished the deal with a rear-naked-choke. After the card, it was announced that Rockhold had picked up a “POTN” and an extra $50,000.

The card’s other “POTN” went to featherweight Max Holloway, who extended his winning streak to six, by submitting fellow contender Cub Swanson. “Blessed” won the fight by catching Swanson with a guillotine choke in round three.

TheĀ “Fight of the Night”, and $50K each, went to light-heavyweights Corey Anderson and Gian Villante. The entertaining battle ended late in round three, after Villante rocked Anderson with a couple of big, right hands.
