The Ultimate Fighter China Finale has just wrapped up, and what a finish to an exciting card. In the main event, Dong Hyun Kim landed an early knockout of the year candidate as he finished John Hathaway with a brutal elbow. The co-main event saw Zhang Lipeng become the first ever TUF China winner by controversial split decision over Wang Sai.
After the event finished, Dana White tweeted out the bonuses for ‘Fight of the Night’, and the two ‘Performances of the night’:

Yui Chul Nam and Kazuki Tokudome took home the fight of the night after a thrilling battle early on in the prelims. In the end, Nam got the split decision victory in his UFC debut.
Before Dong Hyun Kim’s incredible KO in the main event, Matt Mitrione earned his performance of the night bonus with a hellacious fight ending combination on Shawn Jordan. After hurting Jordan late in the first round, Mitrione was patient and waited for an opening to get the finish. With just 1 second left on the clock, Mitrione was able to crumble Jordan on the cage.
