UFC Vegas 40 post-fight bonuses: Jim Miller pockets extra $50k for stunning KO of Gonzalez

UFC Vegas 40 flew under the radar for many fight fans and pundits, but it was an entertaining night nonetheless. The women’s featherweight headliner may have produced the next title challenger for Amanda Nunes, and the heavyweight co-headliner saw a mixed martial arts legend prove he still has what it takes to compete at the highest level.

The preliminary portion of the card began with a fun fight between Ariane Carnelossi and Istela Nunes that ended once ’Sorriso’ submitted the UFC newcomer by way of third-round rear-naked choke. Danaa Batgerel spoiled the promotional return of Brandon Davis and put an end to the fight with a quick first-round technical knockout.
