UFC Fight Night 239 Bonuses Awarded to Tybura, Chiasson, Filho, Amorim

Oh, boy, Marcin Tybura just pocketed an extra $50k. Why, you ask? Well, he finally nailed a submission win after what feels like ages – nearly a decade, to be exact. And not just any win, but a “Performance of the Night” at UFC Fight Night 239. He got Tai Tuivasa to tap out in Las Vegas. Early on, Tuivasa was throwing bombs, but once they hit the mat, Tybura turned the tables. With some serious ground-and-pound action, he set up a rear-naked choke and finished the job at 4:08 of the first round. Last time he did something like this? November 2014. Feels like a lifetime ago, doesn’t it?

Switching gears, Macy Chiasson also had a night to remember. She snagged the same $50,000 bonus for making Pannie Kianzad submit. It was a bit of déjà vu, with Chiasson using a rear-naked choke, the same move that got her the win at the “TUF 28” finale. This time, she wrapped it up 3:54 into the first round. Talk about consistency.

Now, let’s not forget about Jafel Filho. This guy also walked away $50,000 richer. He made quick work of Ode Osbourne in a prelim flyweight bout. Once they hit the ground, it was all Filho. He locked in a rear-naked choke and called it a day at 4:27 of round one. Efficient, right?

Last but not least, Jacqueline Amorim. She grabbed the final $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus. In a strawweight match against Cory McKenna, things got a bit dicey when referee Mike Beltran almost stopped the fight. But Amorim found another chance and secured an armbar, making McKenna tap at just 1:38 of the first round. Talk about making the most of every opportunity.

So, there you have it. A night full of submissions, comebacks, and hefty bonuses. Just another day in the world of MMA, where anything can happen and often does.
