Glover Teixeira and Thiago Santos put on a supremely exciting main event fight at UFC Vegas 13; however, both men were left empty-handed in the bonus categories.
Giga Chikadze was awarded a Performance of the Night bonus for his TKO win over short-notice replacement Jamey Simmons. The finish was set-up by a beautiful head-kick. The other $50,000 went to heavyweight Alexandr Romanov who secured a rare forearm choke against Marcos Rogerio De Lima in the closing seconds of round one.
The Fight of the Night went to Raoni Barcelos and Khalid Taha. Barcelos showed incredible fluidity, significantly hurting Taha with all sorts of strikes and mixing in the grappling. Taha, to his credit, showed durability and power in his punches.
