UFC NORTH PARK Bonuses: Marlon Vera banks a supplementary $50,000 for knocking out Dominick Cruz

Following Saturdays UFC NORTH PARK fight card, UFC officials announced the recipients of the performance-based bonuses.

Fight Of THE NIGHT TIME: Nate Landwehr vs David Onama

Pechanga Arena in NORTH PARK was on its feet at the ultimate bell of Nate Landwehr vs David Onama, giving a roaring standing ovation upon realizing that they had just witnessed an instantaneous classic and possible frontrunner for 2022 fight of the entire year honors. Before reading the scorecards, announcer Joe Martinez uncharacteristally compelled the crowd to operate and give another deafening ovation, that they eagerly supplied.

The scorecards, including one 28-28 tie, tipped and only Landwehr tonite, but its still shocking the fight went the entire 15 minutes. Wild, weird, and violent, both men had their moments, flush with showboating, barroom-style brawling and the pure will of survival makes this sport this unpredictable joy.

Performance Of THE NIGHT TIME: Marlon Vera

Marlon Vera remains among the deepest, most dangerous threats at 135-lbs and his main event KO victory over former champion Dominick Cruz perfectly embodied why.

Despite being down on the scorecards heading in to the fourth round, the Ecuadorian dug deep and stayed patient until he may find a house for his trademark kicks, exactly the same kicks which have stymied just about any opponent hes faced in the division.

The beautiful low-kick KO that brought the raucous crowd to its feet earned Vera probably the most bantamweight finishes in UFC/WEC combined history. Hes tied for second overall in bantamweight victories (12, exactly like champion Aljamain Sterling), and hes still only 29 years.

Performance Of THE NIGHT TIME: Tyson Nam

Following a frustrating string of cancelled fights and a loss, Tyson Nam came roaring back with a stellar first round KO victory over Ode Osbourne that sealed his first Octagon victory since 2019. Timing some jumps he saw from his opponent, Nam capitalized with some veteran timing of their own, dropping Osbourne prior to the clock hit 3 minutes.

When I seen him take action, I said Ok, hes likely to repeat. So when he achieved it again, I had an abrupt surge, he explained, pointing to his bicep, to whip this thing again.

Im back, he added. I understand this feeling from before.
