Nicolas Dalby’s victory over Gabriel Marretinha impressed the organizers more than the main event at UFC São Paulo, last Saturday, at Ginásio do Ibirapuera. Dalby and Marretinha had a competitive confrontation, took the “Fight of the Night” award and earned US$50,000 (approximately R$250,000) each.

Nicolas Dalby knew how to withstand the pressure and beat Gabriel Marretinha by technical knockout. After the Brazilian started better and seemed to be getting closer to a submission, the Dane showed all his resistance, subjected his opponent to a blitz and got the better of the duel.
The beautiful knockout over Kaynan Kruschewsky yielded a good financial return for Elves Brener. The Amazon native won the “Performance of the Night” award and also won US$50,000 (around R$250,000). Vitor Petrino also had an award-winning performance due to his knockout over Modestas Bukauskas.
