UFC Vegas 72 was a night to remember for several fighters, as four competitors walked away with well-deserved performance bonuses. Among them were Song Yadong and Caio Borralho, who put on impressive displays to secure their bonuses.

Song Yadong and Caio Borralho impressed

Yadong faced off against Ricky Simon in a bantamweight bout that was expected to be a closely contested affair. But Yadong had other plans. The ‘Kungfu kid’ put on a striking clinic to earn a TKO victory in the fifth round. Yadong’s crisp striking and effective footwork kept Simon at bay for most of the fight. He landed some heavy shots that rocked his opponent. For his performance, Yadong was awarded a Performance of the Night bonus.

Meanwhile, Borralho made his fourth UFC appearance against Michał Oleksiejczuk in a middleweight bout that was expected to be a barn-burner. Borralho lived up to the hype and then some, as he scored a spectacular rear naked choke in the third round to secure a Performance of the Night bonus. The Brazilian showcased his power and precision with a left hook that put Buckley to sleep.

Both scored big bonuses at UFC Vegas 72

Both Yadong and Borralho were understandably ecstatic about their bonus wins. Yadong, who hails from China, expressed his gratitude to the UFC and his fans for their support.

“I’m so happy to get this bonus,” Yadong said. “It means a lot to me and my family. I want to thank the UFC for giving me the opportunity to fight and showcase my skills.” The Chinese thanked his fans for their support as he promised to keep improving and putting on exciting fights.

Borralho, who had never fought outside of Brazil before his UFC debut, was equally thrilled. The Brazilian middleweight was absolutely ecstatic. Enthralled by his bonus, Borralho knew that he was going to achieve this.

“This is a dream come true for me. I’ve worked so hard to get here, and to win a bonus in my first UFC fight is incredible. I want to thank my team, my coaches, and my family for their support,” Borralho said. Borralho also thanked Joaquin Buckley for accepting the fight. The Brazilian had a lot of respect for his opponent. ‘The Natural’ praised his opponent as a “tough fighter.”

Suffice it to say, UFC Vegas 72 was a memorable night for Yadong and Borralho. Both secured Performance of the Night bonuses for their impressive performances, which amounted to 50,000 USD. The two co-main events definitely lived up to the hype.

Yadong’s striking and footwork were on full display, while Borralho showcased his power and precision with a brutal submission. Both fighters expressed their gratitude to the UFC and their fans and promised to continue putting on exciting fights in the future.
