Jiri Prochazka cashed in on his first UFC main event last night (Sat., May 1, 2021) at UFC Vegas 25 live on ESPN2/ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when “Denisa” finished former light heavyweight title challenger Dominick Reyes with a ridiculous spinning elbow knockout (see it HERE).

In addition to the light heavyweight barn burner, a number of main card and “Prelims” fights produced memorable violence from start to finish. Check them out below:

  • Rising featherweight contender Giga Chikadze scored an impressive body kick knockout over Cub Swanson in the co-main event
  • Light heavyweights Ion Cutelaba and Dustin Jacoby built off their weigh-ins scuffle (watch it HERE) to turn in a wild main card scrap, which ended in a split draw
  • Streaking bantamweight Merab Dvalishvili edged out veteran Cody Stamann in an entertaining battle of takedowns, heavy punches, and powerful transitions

In order to sift through the action and see which fighters took home an extra $50,000, we take a closer look at the official UFC Vegas 25 bonus winners below:
