UFC Vegas 33 Bonuses
The UFC had many options to choose from for their performance bonuses from an action-packed UFC Vegas 33 card. The fight of the night went to the wild affair between Bryan Barberena and Jason Witt, which featured a third round, which will be a contender for the round of the year.
The performance of the night bonuses went to a pair of head-kicks, the first to Cheyanne Buys for her sweet head-kick knockout of Gloria de Paula, and the other to Melsik Baghdasaryan for his stoppage of Collin Anglin. For Buys especially this must mean a lot as she noted how broke she was in her post-fight speech, and broke down in the video that the UFC posted, which can be seen below.

I really didn’t think this fight would be as one-sided as it’s been going. Strickland has landed and has positioned himself for a huge fight after this big win. #UFCVegas33— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) August 1, 2021

The man said if it wasn’t for the ufc and I quote he’d “be cookin meth in prison”— Platinum Mike Perry (@PlatinumPerry) August 1, 2021
Uriah still makes the same mistakes from years ago that causes him to loss & never able to make an adjustment. It’s so simple too. Strickland has a nasty side jab, walks forward and throws ! Good fight overall. Well good fight for Strickland #UFCVegas33— Derek Brunson (@DerekBrunson) August 1, 2021
Uriah Hall just doesn’t seem awake tonight. Strickland’s pressure is a serious problem. #ufcvegasthirtysomething— Anthony Smith (@lionheartasmith) August 1, 2021
