With the UFC Vegas 36 fight card now finished, the post-fight press conference is the last piece of business for the fighters and media.
UFC officials will announce the winners of the “Fight of the Night” and “Performance of the Night” bonuses, and the victorious fighters will face the media after their bouts. Bonus winners will take home an additional 50k, on top of their fight purse.
The UFC Vegas 36 post-fight press conference will take place approximately 30 minutes after the conclusion of the main event, which means it will begin around 7:00 PM EST.
Performance of the night bonuses are usually awarded to fighters who finish their opponents, or who put on a highly dominant performance. UFC Vegas 36 saw 5 finishes in total with 3 knockouts and 2 submissions and 2 submissions.
