UFC St. Louis bonuses: Trey Waters, Billy Goff take home Fight of the Night following epic war

Trey Waters and Billy Goff both took home an extra $50,000 after engaging in a memorable three-round war during the UFC St. Louis prelims on Saturday.

The welterweight battle led the UFC St. Louis bonuses announced by UFC CEO Dana White at the post-fight press conference.

Waters ultimately earned a decision win but nothing came easy as he exchanged bombs with Goff round after round until the final horn. Now, they’ll both enjoy an extra $50,000 bonus for their efforts.

Diego Ferreira had a tough start to his night but then came storming back to finish Mateusz Rebecki on the main card, which earned him an extra $50,000 for Performance of the Night. Ferreira displayed veteran experience to endure an early offensive outburst from Rebecki but then he started dishing out plenty of punishment of his own.

The end of the fight came with just nine seconds left on the clock as Ferreira earned the stoppage win and his second straight performance bonus after taking home the same honor following his previous win over Michael Johnson back in 2023.

The final award went to Carlos Ulberg for his stunning 12-second knockout over Alonzo Menifield, which goes down as the third-fastest finish in UFC light heavyweight history. Ulberg dodged an early attack from Menifield and then fired back with his own punches that ultimately put a quick end to the fight.

In seven fights in the UFC, Ulberg has now earned three post-fight bonuses, including two for Performance of the Night and one for Fight of the Night.
