Stewart did a short job of Maki Pitolo in a clash of middleweight, slapping his foe with a 3:41 guillotine choke in the opening stanza of their featured fight. It was the first submission victory of Stewart’s career.

Holland, meanwhile, nabbed a performance award with a precision shot, knocking out Joaquin Buckley in a preliminary middleweight affair. A long right hand from Holland knocked down Buckley and ended the competition 32 seconds after Round 3.

Elsewhere, Sanchez got extra cash for signing the first end of his UFC tenure in a preliminary £ 185 showdown against Wellington Turman. The winner of “The Ultimate Fighter 23” dropped Turman with a combination of two punches and sealed the victory with a barrage of hammer fists at 4:14 of the first inning.

Finally, Tucker took home the final card performance bonus thanks to a submission from Justin Jaynes in a featherweight preliminary tilt. Tucker rallied after being abandoned in the first round to bring his opponent to the ground with volume strikes before sinking into a bare rear choke for the 1:43 tapout in the third round.
