Jiri Prochazka’s eye-catching interruption to Dominick Reyes earned him a double performance bonus at UFC Vegas 25.
Prochazka will take home a $ 50,000 check for “Performance of the Night” and half of “Fight of the Night” despite his loss. But Reyes will receive a check worth $ 50,000 from his show wallet.
With a spinning elbow placed Reyes at the 4:29 mark of the second round, Prochazka represented two-thirds of the bonus offered for Saturday’s event, which took place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas and aired on ESPN + Bonus at Left to Giga Chikadze, who clinched a sixth consecutive UFC victory with the veteran Cub Swanson̵7;s first-round TKO, Chikadze later called on former featherweight champion Max Holloway.
Prochazka, 28, has defeated 25 of 28 opponents in his nine-year career in MMA.
