Jiri Prochazka’s expected suspension of Dominic Reyes won him two performance bonuses in UFC Vegas 25.
Prochazka will take home a pair of $ 50,000 checks for “Presentation of the Night” and as half of “Battle of the Night.” Despite his loss, Reyes will receive a check for $ 50,000 on top of his wallet.
With a spinning elbow that set Reyes at 4:29 in the second round, Prochazka presented two-thirds of the bonuses handed out for Saturday’s event, which took place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas and aired on ESPN +. The rest of the bonus went to Giga Chikadze, who won his sixth consecutive victory in the UFC with the first round of the knockout of veteran Cub Swanson. Chikadze then summoned former light heavyweight champion Max Holloway.
The 28-year-old Prochazka knocked out 25 of his 28 opponents in his nine years in professional MMA.
