McCann and Ji Yeon Kim earned the Fight of the Night honor for their action kickboxing bout which saw McCann emerge victorious, and then each of Pimblett and Aspinall got an extra $50,000 for their finishes of Luigi Vendramini and Serghei Spivac respectively.

If Brunson doesn’t tire, I think he takes this one. Much improved over the years and past few fights. He uses his wrestling well and inflicts good damage on top or gets good control time. But sometimes that grappling fatigues him #UFCVegas36— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) September 4, 2021

Till for real come by we do some wrestling— Marvin Vettori (@MarvinVettori) September 4, 2021
That wasn’t wise. He should have ditched the knee and resorted to takedown defense first. Beautiful shot from Brunson! #UFCVegas36— Tatiana Suarez (@tatianaufc) September 4, 2021
