UFC on ESPN 9 bonuses: Mackenzie Dern banks $50K for kneebar submission finish

Gilbert Burns put a definitive end to Tyron Woodley’s comeback fight last night (Sat., May 30, 2020) live on ESPN/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada, as the rising welterweight contender dominated the former UFC champion for all five rounds of their anticipated headliner (highlights HERE).

In addition to the main event, rising superstar Mackenzie Dern recorded the first ever kneebar submission finish in UFC women’s history (see it HERE), rising light heavyweight prospect Jamahal Hill scored a fabulous knockout victory over Klidson Abreu, touted flyweight newcomer Brandon Royval handed veteran Tim Elliott yet another submission loss, and exciting featherweights Billy Quarantillo and Spike Carlyle collided in a fantastic main card war.
