TUF 19 Finale Fighter Bonuses: Undercard Fighter Leandro Issa Earns Big Payday

Leandro Issa collected two fight night awards, totaling $100,000 in bonuses for his efforts at the TUF 19 Finale on Sunday in Las Vegas, UFC President Dana White announced.

Issa collected a Performance of the Night bonus for his submission of Jumabieke Tuerxun, and the two won the Fight of the Night award. The other Performance of the Night went to Adriano Martins.

Tuerxun found success on the feet against Issa, landing a number of blows on his opponent for the majority of three rounds. In the end, however, Issa found an opening on the ground, finishing the night’s most exciting fight via armbar.

Martins, a Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist, proved that he has power in his hands as well, knocking out Juan Manuel Puig in the first round of their undercard fight.

Capping off the evening was an outstanding showcase by Frankie Edgar in a throttling of B.J. Penn via technical knockout. Following the loss, Penn announced he agreed with White’s opinion that the fighter should retire from MMA, making the end of his career official during the post-fight press conference.
