UFC Uruguay: Veronica Macedo earns Performance of the Night bonus with submission victory

Not only did Veronica Macedo pick up her first UFC victory in Uruguay on Saturday, but she also earned a $50,000 bonus in doing so.

Post-fight, the UFC announced that Macedo won ‘Performance of the Night’ for her first round armbar submission of Polyana Viana.

Viana took Macedo down early after Macedo missed a spinning back kick to the mid-section. Veronica was quick to regain composure— using her flexibility to lock in a tight arm bar that eventually forced Polyana to tap.

The finish came at 1:06 of the first round— setting the record as the fastest submission finish in women’s flyweight history.
