  • Jailton Almeida received the highest payout, with $765,000.
  • Seven fighters secured a payout of over $100,000.

The UFC made a triumphant return in Brazil as the UFC Sao Paulo card delivered an entertaining night of fights. Hometown bet Jailton Almeida (20-2) proved why he was the favorite in UFC odds after beating former title challenger Derrick Lewis (27-12) in the main event via unanimous decision.

“Malhadinho” used his superior grappling skills against “The Black Beast” to dominate him on the ground and neutralize his one-punch knockout power. Almeida also set a new heavyweight record in control time after chalking up a total of 21:10. He improved his UFC record to 6-0 and is likely to move up in the division’s ranking.

Aside from the outstanding showing by Almeida, four other fighters stood out during the night, as they received an additional $50,000 bonus for their excellent performances. The co-main event bout between Gabriel Bonfim and Nicolas Dalby received the Fight of the Night honor, during which Dalby scored a second-round TKO over Bonfim.

Other $50K bonus recipients were Elves Brener and Vitor Petrino as they finished their respective opponents, with Brener knocking out Kaynan Kruschewsky in the opening round of their catchweight fight while Petrino stopping Modestas Bukauskas in the second round of their light heavyweight showdown.
