Warlley Alves returned to the win column in emphatic fashion at UFC on ESPN 20.

Alves’ assault of prospect Mounir Lazzez in the evening’s welterweight co-main event earned him a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” award. The Brazilian veteran was aggressive from the outset before flooring his foe with a series of kicks to the body. From there, Alves sealed the victory with ground-and-pound at the 2:35 mark of Round 1.

Elsewhere, Mike Davis and Mason Jones shared “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their preliminary lightweight scrap. The two combatants combined to land 225 significant strikes, but it was Davis who connected with more authority throughout the contest to secure a unanimous decision triumph.

Earlier, Umar Nurmagomedov delivered in his Octagon debut, receiving the card’s other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” check thanks to a submission of Sergey Morozov in a preliminary bantamweight clash. After displaying a well-rounded standup attack, Nurmagomedov put his foe to sleep with a rear-naked choke at the 3:39 mark of Round 2.
