UFC Vegas 9 was without a Fight of the Night; however, four very deserving fighters took home Performance of the Night bonuses.
Ovince Saint Preux, Michel Pereira, Brian Kelleher and Andre Muniz were all awarded $50,000 for finishes they snatched at UFC Vegas 9.
Saint Preux crumpled Alonzo Menfield with a counter right walk-off KO that would have made Saitama (One-Punch Man) proud. Pereira may have earned a questionable rear-naked choke stoppage but there is no denying his entire performance was exhilarating. Kelleher sunk-in a sub-40-second guillotine choke against Ray Rodriguez, and Andre Muniz nearly snapped Bartosz Fabinski's arm with a first-round armbar.
UFC Vegas 9 took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, September 5. The event was headlined by ranked heavyweights Overeem and Augusto Sakai. The card aired on ESPN+. Keep up with Fightful for all your fight night coverage.
