At UFC 255, flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo successfully defended his title by choking challenger Alex Perez in under two minutes. However, the cake lacked $50,000 in icing. UFC president Dana White awards four $50,000 performance bonuses at each event, generally to both fighters for the Fight of the Night, and two more for the event's best finishes. 

The Fight of the Night at UFC 255 went not to either the main or co-main title fights, but rather went to the very first fight on the card - Sasha Palatnikov vs. Louis Cosce. And performance bonuses went to Antonina Shevchenko for her TKO of Ariane Lipski and Joaquin Buckley for his KO of Jordan Wright. It was odd that Figgy Smalls didn't earn one, and, White, after consideration, agreed.

White met with the fighter and his manager Wallid Ismail, conceded that he had made a mistake, and passed over the 50k, in person, in cash.

“I f***ed up,” said a grinning White. “I made a mistake.”

Pretty cool!

Hopefully he gets a bigger check for the next ppv since it's a 3 week turnaround and saving a card.

That must be one cool feeling. Holding 50 thousand bucks in your hand and knowing it's yours. How many people ever get to do that?

I hope the 2 weight cuts so close together don't affect him too much.

Antonina did not deserve a bonus.  Her grappling was white belt level compared to what Davidson pulled off.

Not to everyone. That's life changing money in some hands.

True,but his opponent is going through the same thing,and might be a little bigger cut compared to Figgy Smalls

I would have just bought the little kid a popsicle and called it even.
