Official UFC 284 bonuses: Jack Della Maddalena banks $50K for quick submission

Islam Makhachev did just enough to retain his UFC lightweight title in a main event superfight with Alexander Volkanovski last night (Sat., Feb. 11, 2023) at UFC 284 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside RAC Arena in Perth, Australia. In the co-main event, Yair Rodriguez captured interim featherweight gold with a second-round submission win over veteran Josh Emmett.

In addition to the main and co-main event attractions, UFC 284 produced a laundry list of high-tilt matchups, knockouts, and submissions. Check them out below:

  • Women’s strawweight veteran Loma Lookboonmee scored her first career submission win by stopping Elise Reed via rear-naked choke (watch HERE)
  • Flyweight prospect Kleydson Rodrigues lived up to his hype by stopping Contenders Series alum Shannon Ross with a 59-second TKO
  • Joshua Culibao shook off a terrible spinning back kick to the groin to submit fellow featherweight Melsik Baghdasaryan in the second round (highlights HERE)
  • Heavyweight power puncher Justin Tafa scored a huge knockout finish over Parker Porter just 66 seconds into the first round (watch HERE)
  • Jack Della Maddalena pushed his UFC welterweight record to 4-0 with a first-round submission finish over Randy Brown
