Marina Rodriguez is again in bonus land for the primary time since 2021.
The 36-year-old strawweight contender was one in all 4 bonus winners at UFC Vegas 79, cashing an additional $50,000 for her brutal victory over Michelle Waterson-Gomez on Saturday’s important card. Rodriguez earned Efficiency of the Night time honors for her second-round stoppage of Waterson-Gomez, which snapped a two-fight dropping streak.
The night’s closing two bonuses went to Tim Means and Andre Fialho, each of whom earned Struggle of the Night time honors for his or her welterweight brawl on the preliminary card. In a back-and-forth bout, Means defeated Fialho through third-round TKO.
All bonuses had been $50,000.
