Following a tough start to the fight, Andrade needed just one brutal slam that brought Namajunas crashing down to the canvas, rendering her unconscious immediately as the fight came to an end.

In the aftermath of the fight, Andrade was awarded the ‘Fight of the Night’ bonuse alongside Namajunas while the new strawweight champion also took home an additional $50,000 for ‘Performance of the Night’.

The other bonus went to former ‘Ultimate Fighter’ winner Warlley Alves, who earned a vicious knockout of his own against Sergio Moraes on the preliminary card.

Alves will also take home $50,000 for ‘Performance of the Night’ at UFC 237.
