Boetsch, Alan Jouban,
Baczynski and Thiago
Tavares all took home $50,000 bonuses at
UFC Fight Night “Bader vs. St. Preux” on Saturday.
Tavares netted one of the $50,000 “Performance of the Night” awards
for his first-round rear-naked choke victory of Robbie
Peralta at Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine. The
Brazilian controlled the fight on the floor before finally
finishing the festivities with by taking Peralta’s back and sinking
in the submission.
For Boetsch, his $50,000 “Performance” bonus came by way of a
second-round technical knockout finish against Brad
Tavares. The scrap started off with Tavares getting the best of
“The Barbarian,” but with a little hometown support, Boetsch was
able to rally for the come-from-behind victory.
In the “Fight of the Night,” Jouban survived his first appearance
in the Octagon in fine fashion, dispelling of nine-fight UFC
veteran Baczynski via vicious knockout in the opening frame. The
Black House MMA product ate some shots en route to the victory, but
was able to push his winning streak to three straight.
