TUF 27 Finale bonuses: Israel Adesanya earns Performance of the Night
(https:)
Israel Adesanya didn’t just put on a performance in The Ultimate Fighter 27 Finale on Friday night that left longtime observers wondering if we just might be seeing the rise of MMA’s next great talent. “The Last Stylebender” also pocketed an extra $50,000 for his efforts. Adesanya picked apart a very tough Brad Tavares in the middleweight main event of the Las Vegas card, earning a unanimous decision on scores of 49-46 and a pair of 50-45s. For that, Adesanya earned one of the evening’s Performance of the Night bonuses, his second in three UFC appearances. The other Performance of the Night award went to lightweight Luis Pena. The TUF 27 contestant from Team Cormier needed just 3:32 to finish Richie Smullen and earn a bonus in his first official UFC bout. Fight of the night - Alex Caceres vs Martin Bravo

Former UFC champion, 'TUF' winner Michael Bisping announces retirement
(https:)
Former UFC middleweight champion Michael Bisping has decided against a final fight and today announced he is officially retired. On his “Believe You Me” podcast, Bisping indicated vision problems were behind his decision to hang up his gloves and added he has nothing left to prove as a fighter. “It ain’t worth it,” Bisping said. “What else am I going to do? I won the belt, I’ve had tons of wins. I’ve done everything I set out to achieve. “What’s the point of flogging a dead horse? Not that I’m a dead horse, but what’s the point? … I’ve used my platform to open other doors. You’ve got to know when to walk away. I’m almost 40 years old – the time is now.”

Why Invicta FC flyweight champion Jennifer Maia turned down TUF 26 opportunity
(https:)
Jennifer Maia is one of the top flyweights in the world, so why wasn’t she on the 26th season of The Ultimate Fighter? The UFC recently crowned its first women’s flyweight champion with a special edition of the company’s reality show, and Maia, the current Invicta FC 125-pound champion, was not listed as one of the contestants. Set to defend her Invicta FC belt just seven days after Nicco Montaño won the inaugural UFC title with a decision win over Roxanne Modafferi, Maia said that she got a call from the promotion to be on the reality show, but turned down the opportunity. "They invited me to be on The Ultimate Fighter, but since I’m the Invicta champion I thought that I don’t need to go through TUF to be in the UFC,” Maia told MMA Fighting. "Sometimes you’re not in a good day there and end up losing, and it’s not smart to leave a promotion where I’m the champion to try something.
