McGregor, Romero Win POTN Bonus, Woodley-Thompson Named FOTN At UFC 205 In NYC

At the official UFC 205 post-fight press conference on Saturday night after the historic mega-event at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the Performance of the Night and Fight of the Night bonus winners were announced.

As seen in the tweet that soon followed via UFC’s official Twitter page, one of two “Performance of the Night” (POTN) bonuses went to Conor McGregor, the UFC’s first-ever fighter to hold world titles in two weight divisions simultaneously. “The Notorious” one took home some extra bonus money after dropping former UFC Lightweight Champion Eddie Alvarez with big power punches several times before finishing him off at the 3:04 mark of the second round.

The second POTN bonus would go to UFC Middleweight fighter Yoel Romero for his highlight reel flying knee knockout of former 185-pound champion Chris Weidman in the second round of their main card bout.

Finally, the bonus for the “Fight of the Night” at UFC 205 this weekend went to challenger Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson and UFC Welterweight Champion Tyron Woodley and the man he fought to a Majority Draw with in the co-main event of the evening, which kept the gold around the waist of “The Chosen One.”
