Check out the fall out from UFC 265 including the bonuses, all the reactions, and the press conference after the jump.
UFC Vegas 265 Bonuses
An action packed UFC Vegas 265 card saw extra bonuses awarded, and even more after prompting from members of the media.
First the fight of the night was awarded to the excellent featured prelim bout between Rafael Fiziev and Bobby Green.
The performance of the night bonuses initially were awarded to Jessica Penne for her armbar on Karolina Kowalkiewicz, Miles Johns for his sweet knockout of Anderson Dos Santos, and to Vicente Luque for his D'Arce Choke of Michael Chiesa. However after being asked by MMAJunkie's John Morgan, Dana White proceeded to also award Cyril Gane a bonus for his work in the main event.
