UFC 211: Miocic vs. dos Santos 2 was held on May 13, 2017, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.
Following the event, the UFC handed out one ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus and two ‘Performance of the Night’ bonuses to fighters who went above and beyond last night.
The fight of the night was clear from the preliminary card. Chase Sherman and Rashad Coulter put on a heavyweight brawl. Early on in the fight, Sherman chewed up Coulter’s lead leg with heavy leg kicks, however, Coulter showed grit and determination, fighting on basically one leg and had Sherman in trouble more than once. Ultimately, though, Sherman found an elbow against the cage following a flurry to finish Coulter.
The two ‘Performance of the Night’ bonuses went to Stipe Miocic who defended his heavyweight title by knocking out Junior dos Santos in the first round, and Jason Knight who earned an impressive knockout victory over Chas Skelly on the UFC 211 preliminary card.
Each fighter who won a bonus earns an extra $50,000.
