The UFC on ESPN 15 bonuses have been released.
The event took place inside Las Vegas, Nevada at the UFC APEX. Headlining the card was a bantamweight clash between Pedro Munhoz and Frankie Edgar. This fight saw the two fighters have a great bout that was all boxing.
Although Edgar did attempt and sometimes get takedowns, it was due to his game plan as he did that to fake out Munoz as a way to land some additional strikes from close range.
The co-main event was supposed to see more action between Ovince Saint Preux and Alonzo Menifield in a light heavyweight showdown. That wasn’t the case as it was pulled just hours before the event started due to OSP testing positive for COVID-19.
Thus, we got a new co-main event, which was Marcin Prachnio vs. Mike Rodríguez in a light heavyweight showdown. This fight saw Rodríguez score a first-round KO win after landing a nasty elbow strike.
The “Fight of the Night” honors went to Edgar and Munoz as expected because of such a good fight that they put on. Shana Dobson and Trevin Jones scooped up bonus money for their wins.
