After putting on one of the best performances of his career, Robert Whittaker will be going home to Australia with an extra $50,000 in his pocket.
Whittaker was rewarded for his stunning display of striking in the main event, while Gastelum was rewarded at the same time for a very admirable display of toughness, by surviving all five rounds, and pushing forward the whole fight.
Meerschaert and Gravely both had finishes on the undercard which were awarded performance of the night bonuses. Meerschaert secured a guillotine choke finish over Bartosz Fabinski in the very first round for his 24th career submission. While Gravely announced himself as a potential contender in the talent rich bantamweight division with an excellent performance punctuated by an excellent TKO finish.
