Timur Valiev and Raoni Barcelos engaged in one of the evening’s most competitive battles at UFC Fight Night 190, and both men are now $50,000 richer for their efforts.

Valiev and Barcelos received “Fight of the Night” honors for their bantamweight clash on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. Though Barcelos scored the bout’s only two knockdowns in the second frame, Valiev ultimately captured a narrow majority decision thanks to superior volume and movement in Rounds 1 and 3.

Elsewhere, Kennedy Nzechukwu earned a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award thanks to a come-from-behind victory over Danilo Marques at light heavyweight. After spending much of the first two rounds fending off rear-naked choke attempts from his opponent, the man known as “African Savage” put Marques away with a flurry of punches 20 seconds into the final frame.

Finally, Marcin Prachnio garnered the card’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” check on the strength of a second-round knockout of Isaac Villanueva in another light heavyweight affair. The Polish fighter switched to a southpaw stance and buried his shin in his opponent’s liver 56 seconds into Round 2, causing Villanueva to double over in pain and bringing an instant end to the bout.
