    -Jorge Masvidal defeated Donald Cerrone by TKO (Strike, Round 2, 1:00)

    Preliminary Card (Live on FOX Sports 1, 5:00 PM ET)

    -Sam Alvey defeated Nate Marquardt by Unanimous Decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)
    -Raphael Assuncao defeated Aljamain Sterling by Split Decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28)

    -Jordan Johnson defeated Luis Henrique da Silva by Unanimous Decision
    -Eric Spicely defeated Alessio Di Chirico by Submission (Triangle Choke, Round 1)
    -Marcos Rogerio de Lima defeated Jeremy Kimball by TKO (Strikes, Round 1, 2:27)

    50,000 performance bonuses are given at each event.

    Usually, there is a Fight of the Night in which both fighters are given a performance bonus, and a performance bonus to the winner in two fights. “Performance Bonus” is a phrase for fights that made you say “HOLY F@#$ING $#!@.”

    One of the primary differences between the UFC model and the boxing model is the depth of the card. Sometimes the best fights are all the way down on the UFC Fight Pass prelims. This was an exception. No Fight of the Night was given out; instead, there were four performance bonuses, with all four of them going to the four-fight main card.

    White did indicate the thought the Fight of the Night was Li Jingliang vs. Bobby Nash, which the former won by TKO (Strikes, Round 2, 4:45).

    “I’m going to give those guys a little something, too,” said White.
