TUF Brazil 3 Finale post-event bonuses: Miocic earns $50,000 with quick knockout over Fabio Maldonado

David Banks-USA TODAY Sports

Stipe Miocic and Warlley Alves picked up performance bonuses while Kevin Souza and Mark Eddiva won 'Fight of the Night' honours.

The UFC concluded its historic doubleheader with an event in Sao Paulo, Brazil, that featured an array of stoppages and entertaining scraps to send the crowd home generally satisfied. While the pacing may not have been the best, as is the case with TUF Finales, it was a decent fight card that culminated in a enjoyable heavyweight clash.

Arguably the biggest mismatch of the entire day took place in the main event, as Ohio-native Stipe Miocic made quick work of Fabio Maldonado in exactly 35 seconds of fight time. It was a lopsided mismatch from the start, and yielded the exact result that many anticipated. It is hard to consider this one of Miocic's better UFC wins, but it was still a quick stoppage and earned him a performance bonus.

Warlley Alves put on a fantastic performance on the main card, as he defeated Marcio Alexandre Junior via second round guillotine choke to become the latest Ultimate Fighter winner in the UFC. Alves arguably the most touted competitor coming off TUF Brazil 3, and lived up to those expectations on Saturday night with a dominant showing in his feature fight.  It will be interesting to see what is next for Alves, as he is likely to drop back down to his natural weight division, which is welterweight.

The evening's 'Fight of the Night' was between "Kevin" Souza and Mark Eddiva, who put on an entertaining scrap for the better part of two rounds on the preliminary portion of the card. While most had ruled Eddiva out prior to the start of the fight, the Filipino native put on a valiant effort, and was even getting the better of the exchanges early in the second round, but ultimately succumbed to a vicious barrage at the end of the round.
