    Fight of the Night: Irene Aldana vs. Lucie Pudilová
    Performance of the Night: Tyron Woodley, and Jéssica Andrade


    How did Jessica get a POTN over Alhassan, when Alhassan KO'd his opponent in 43 seconds? At this rate, he could have shot laser beams out his ass and still wouldn't have got the POTN. What does it take? Damn


    Don't pull the "her opponent was ranked higher" BS. We've seen countless times the top fighters put on a lesser performance and fighters who are lesser ranked or unranked get the bonus because their performance was better.

    Looks like they're changing their criteria from card to card based on convenience now. Alhassan should have gotten the POTN. Any idea why he didn't?

    I think you answered yourself.
    They change it from card to card based on convenience, so there's really nothing else to it.

    One punch knocking someone out at 115 is a lot rarer than at 170.

    It was higher on the card, a higher ranked fight, blah blah blah. The UFC does what the UFC want, deal with it.

    Tell me the last time you saw a one punch knockout at WOMENS strawweight. Go ahead. I'll wait.

    It should be Tyron vs Till. Dana couldn't swallow it, so they gave it to Aldana

    WMMA SW fighters failing to knockout their opponents with a punch automatically makes it the better performance compared to Alhassan's? That says a lot about the state of WMMA, but it doesn't mean Alhassan's wasn't the better Performance OF THE NIGHT.

    On account of rarity? Sure I'd say it's the better performance since she did it to a highly ranked opponent. And even if it didnt happen Sterling or Zabit would have gotten it because of their crazy Suloev stretch submissions.
