UFC Vegas 92 started off with a whimper, with a preliminary card marred by a lack of action and a DQ that saw Piera Rodriguez lose to Ariane Carnelossi after landing a pair of headbutts ruled intentional.

The main card saw the UFC’s latest APEX offing finally pick up steam, with some exciting finishes and an action-packed main event making up for the evening’s slow start. And so it’s no surprise that all four bonus-winners were selected from that main card offing, with the featherweight headliner featuring Lerone Murphy and Edson Barboza earning Fight of the Night.

Murphy pretty much called that after putting on a dominant five-round performance. Outside of the opening round, which one judge awarded Barboza and saw the Brazilian land a nasty upkick, it was Lerone Murphy leading the fight, seemingly landing on Barboza with ease. Watching the Brazilian striker be out-struck was a sight to behold, and only Barboza’s granite chin kept him in the fight.

Outside of the Fight of the Night, UFC Vegas 92 produced the usual two Performance of the Night bonuses. Angela Hill earned one for her first career submission, which saw her catch Luana Pinheiro in a mounted guillotine. The sub came in the third round, after Hill had demonstrated improved grappling and an overall well-rounded game. Khaos Williams, who scored a walk-off KO of Carlston Harris on the co-headliner, earned the other Performance bonus.

All four fighters will pocket an extra $50,000 USD for their efforts.
