It was a night of violence in California’s capital.
Faber was basically a lock to walk away $50,000 richer after tearing through Ricky Simon with first-round KO. This marked his first walk to the Octagon since December 2016.
“The California Kid” also extended his record for most finishes (6) and wins (9) in UFC bantamweight history
The other bonuses went to Martinez, who starched Pingyuan Liu with devastating knee late in the final frame, Emmett, for a TKO over the surging Mirsad Bektic, and Andre Fili for his stoppage win over Sheymon Moraes.
It should be noted, there was no Fight of the Night.
