LAS VEGAS – In two appearances under the UFC banner, Chidi Njokuani has not seen the second round in either fight, and that is no accident. If the hard-hitting middleweight had his choice, rather than be involved in a Fight of the Night type of battle, every fight would end in 16 seconds like his UFC debut against Marc-Andre Barriault. However, when a fight is finished so quickly, Njokuani (22-7 MMA, 2-0 UFC) doesn’t get to truly show his full game. It’s a tricky balance, but spectacular first-round finishes certainly come with perks, including less damage, the ability to make a quick turnaround, and the high likelihood of claiming a Performance of the Night bonus. Njokuani has taken home two such bonuses after both appearances in the UFC.
