The finish of the main event Kennedy Nzechukwu topped the list of four knockouts that earned the winners bonus checks on Saturday.

At UFC Vegas 65, four fighters were awarded a $50,000 Performance of the Night award after impressive finishes to their fights: Nzechukwu, Muslim Salikhov, Jack Della Maddalena and Natalia Silva.

Nzechukwu helped save a card that lost Derrick Lewis’s scheduled main event against Sergei Spivac at the last minute, coming back from a slow first round to beat Ion Cutelaba en route to a second round stoppage in headliner substitution.

Salikhov and Silva added to their final results by roundabout knockouts of rivals Andre Fialho and Teresa Bleda, respectively. Like Nzechukwu, Salikhov overcame some difficult moments to bounce back for the win, while Silva found a late finish by punching the debuting Bleda in the face.

In what was originally planned to be the card’s major opener, Della Maddalena scored his third first-round knockout in as many UFC appearances as he quickly made short work of veteran welterweight Danny Roberts.
