The UFC capped off the month of October with a thrilling UFC Fight Night 232 event, showcasing 14 exciting matches and crowning four fighters with "Best Performance of the Night" bonuses. While there were no "memorable wars" to award the coveted "Best Fight of the Night" bonus, the evening was still filled with impressive performances that left fans wanting more.
Brendan Allen stole the show in the main event, putting on a dominant display against Paul Craig. Allen's masterful grappling skills earned him a rear-naked choke submission at the start of the third round, extending his winning streak to seven consecutive fights.
This victory earned Allen his third performance bonus in his last four UFC appearances, a testament to his newfound winning formula.
Ribas securing first performance bonus
Amanda Ribas also delivered one of the best performances of her career, showcasing her striking prowess in a come-from-behind victory over Luana Pinheiro.
After a slow start in the first round, Ribas turned up the heat in the second and third rounds, overwhelming Pinheiro with a relentless pace and powerful strikes. Ribas's impressive performance was capped off with a brilliant back roundhouse kick that rocked Pinheiro, leading to a ground-and-pound finish and her first-ever performance bonus.
Joanderson Brito added to his impressive UFC run with a fourth consecutive victory, this time defeating Jonathan Pearce with a stunning "ninja" choke in the second round. Brito's performance was particularly impressive given Pearce's early control of the fight.
Brito's ability to adapt and secure a submission victory further solidified his position as a rising star in the UFC featherweight division.
