UFC on FOX 22 bonuses: Michelle Waterson’s first-round submission leads the way

MMA: UFC Fight Night-VanZant vs Waterson Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

On a card that could have been considered an underrated FOX edition, the fighters came to scrap last night (Sat., Dec. 17, 2016) at UFC on FOX 22 live on FOX from inside Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, California. Headliner Michelle Waterson put Paige VanZant to sleep, Mickey Gall submitted “Super” Sage Northcutt, Urijah Faber retired after a decisive win over veteran Brad Pickett and Alan Jouban put a stop to the rise of knockout artist Mike Perry. You also can’t forget the slick submission finish by Scotland’s Paul Craig, Eddie Wineland’s first-round TKO of Takeya Mizugaki and Leslie Smith’s war with Irene Aldana.

In order to determine which fight performances stood out among the rest to earn an extra $50,000, we take a closer look at the official UFC on FOX 22 bonus winners below:
