Brunno Ferreira delivered the most memorable moment at UFC on ESPN 57. The Brazilian fighter earned a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus for his stunning spinning back elbow knockout of Dustin Stoltzfus. 

The knockout came at 4:51 in the first round of their middleweight bout. Despite some early challenges, Ferreira kept his cool and achieved only the eighth spinning back elbow knockout in UFC history.

Raul Rosas Jr. also took home a $50,000 bonus for his second-round submission win over Ricky Turcios in a bantamweight fight. The 19-year-old prospect finished his opponent with a rear-naked choke at 2:22 of the second round.

Zachary Reese was another big winner, securing a $50,000 bonus for his quick first-round victory over Julian Marquez in a middleweight fight. Reese, a Dana White’s Contender Series alum, needed just 20 seconds to earn his first UFC win.

Carlos Prates rounded out the night’s bonuses with a $50,000 award for his finish of Charlie Radtke in a preliminary welterweight bout. Prates ended the fight with a perfectly-placed knee to the body at 4:47 in the first round.
