UFC on ESPN 54: Nate Landwehr Gets $50K Bonus for Comeback Win

Nate Landwehr is turning heads in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Seriously, this guy is like binge-worthy TV but for fight fans.

He recently bagged himself a cool $50,000. Why? For delivering a knockout punch to Jamall Emmers. This all went down at UFC on ESPN 54 in Atlantic City. Picture this: Landwehr, rocked early on, makes a comeback. He lands a massive uppercut, followed by a flurry of punches. Bam! 4:43 into the first round, and it’s lights out for Emmers.

But wait, there’s more. Dennis Buzukja also snagged a “Performance of the Night” bonus. His victory? A stunning stoppage of Connor Matthews. How did he do it? A right cross-left hook combo, then relentless hammerfists. All it took was 22 seconds into round three. Talk about efficiency.

And then, there’s the rematch that had everyone on the edge of their seats. Ibo Aslan vs. Anton Turkalj. These two light heavyweights threw down, earning “Fight of the Night” honors. And yes, another $50,000 each. The first 10 minutes? A back-and-forth battle. But Aslan, oh boy, he sealed the deal. An overhand right sent Turkalj packing 1:32 into the third round. Sweet, sweet victory for Aslan, avenging his 2021 loss under the Brave Combat Federation banner.

So, yeah. If you missed it, you missed out. But hey, there’s always next time.
