MMA: UFC Fight Night-Lewis vs Browne Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne have earned Fight of the Night bonuses for their heavyweight war on Sunday night at UFC Fight Night 105. The UFC announced the news following the event.

The two top-10 heavyweights had a back-and-forth battle in the main event of the card, which took place at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. It was an action-packed fight that started well for Browne, but ended in the favor of Lewis, as ‘The Black Beast’ rocked Browne in the second round and eventually followed up with enough punches to knock out Browne before the bell rang. Both Lewis and Browne will be taking home an extra $50,000 in Fight of the Night awards.

Lewis is now on a six-fight winning streak, while Browne is 1-4 in his past five trips to the octagon.

Additionally, the other two $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses were given to Paul Felder and Thiago Santos.

Felder scored an impressive first-round technical knockout over Canada’s Alessandro Ricci. This is Felder’s third Fight Night bonus since joining the promotion in 2015. The lightweight fighter is now 5-3 in the UFC.

Meanwhile, Santos also had a finish of his own, stopping Jack Marshman with a spinning wheel kick in the second round of their middleweight bout. With this performance, the Brazilian was able to bounce back from a two-fight losing skid to Eric Spicely and Gegard Mousasi.
