The UFC Denver bonuses, live gate and attendance have been released.
Last night (Nov. 10), UFC Denver took place inside the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. Headlining the card was a featherweight clash between Yair Rodriguez and the “Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung. Rodriguez connected with a spectacular upward elbow with just one second left in the fight to knock Jung out cold. The official scorecards revealed that Jung was ahead in the fight. Both men received $50,000 bonuses for “Fight of the Night.” Rodriguez also received a bonus for “Performance of the Night.”
The co-main event saw a welterweight bout between hometown favorite Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Mike Perry. There was some bad blood going into this one as Cerrone split from Jackson-Wink MMA. In the end it was “Cowboy” who nabbed a first-round submission. He brought his infant son into the Octagon to show everyone what truly matters. Cerrone took home a “Performance of the Night” bonus.
The card also saw former UFC women’s featherweight champion Germaine de Randamie in action. She went one-on-one with former women’s bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington. “The Iron Lady” took a unanimous decision victory.
As far as attendance is concerned, UFC officials announced that the event drew 11,426 fans. The live gate number was $946,700. MMA News has you covered with results, highlights, and post-fight tidbits from UFC Denver. Be sure to keep checking the homepage for the latest news.
