Randy Brown Pockets $50K for First-Round Knockout

Published:

It was one of the cleanest victories of Randy
Brown’s
Ultimate Fighting Championship career.

Brown quickly dispatched Muslim
Salikhov in their featured welterweight clash at
UFC Fight Night 235 on Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas,
earning himself a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus in the
process. Brown followed a double jab with a perfectly-placed right
cross that sent Salikhov crashing to the canvas. Though the contest
was all but over, Brown landed one standing-to-ground shot before
the bout was waved off at the 3:17 mark of Round 1.

Elsewhere, fan favorite Molly
McCann received a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” check for
a successful strawweight debut against Diana
Belbita. In a rematch of a 2019 bout that was contested at 125
pounds, McCann was aggressive on the feet before forcing a tap with
an armbar 4:59 into the opening frame. “Meatball” snapped a
two-bout skid in victory.

Finally, Charles
Johnson and Azat Maksum
secured “Fight of the Night” honors and $50,000 apiece for their
back-and-forth flyweight scrap. Maksum floored his foe in Round 1,
but when the finish didn’t arrive, Johnson gradually gained
momentum and asserted himself down the stretch for a unanimous
decision triumph.
