Stephen R. Sylvanie-USA TODAY Sports

Leandro Issa won both a performance bonus and ‘Fight of the Night’ honours for his come-from-behind submission victory over Jumabieke Tuerxun.

The second of two UFC events this weekend took place on Sunday night at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. The card featured an array of entertaining stoppages worthy of the coveted $50,000 bonus but one fighter in particular stole the show.

Not only did Brazil's Leandro Issa successfully rebound from a loss in his UFC debut, he did it in stunning fashion with a come-from-behind submission victory over Jumabieke Tuerxun. After being dominated for the better part of two rounds, Issa came out with a sense of urgency in the third round and looked for a variety of submissions until he locked in an armbar to secure the late stoppage. The dramatic win earned Issa both 'Fight of the Night' and a performance bonus for a grand total of $100,000.

Brazil's Adriano Martins rebounded from his KO loss to Donald Cerrone with a knockout win of his own on Sunday evening, as he dropped Juan Manuel Puig with a right hook that sent him tumbling to the canvas. The win puts him at 2-1 in the UFC and marks his second performance bonus.
