Cerrone and Al Iaquinta
shared “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their
headlining battle at
UFC Ottawa on Saturday night. Cerrone set a career high with
138 significant strikes landed while also dropping Iaquinta twice
en route to a unanimous decision triumph.
Elsewhere, Walt Harris
received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for his
50-second TKO of Sergey
Spivak in a featured heavyweight scrap. A volley of heavy
punches and knees against the fence sent Spivak to the canvas,
where Harris unloaded with punches and hammerfists to secure the
finish in short order.
Chiasson earned the evening’s other $50,000 “Performance of the
Night” check on the strength of a second round stoppage of Sarah Moras
at bantamweight. “The Ultimate Fighter 28” winner denied a takedown
attempt in the second stanza and finished her opponent with
ground-and-pound at the 2:22 mark of the period.
