UFC on ESPN+ 25, also called UFC Rio Rancho, UFC Fight Night 167. and UFC Fight Night: Anderson vs. Blachowicz 2 was held on February 15 at the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico.

In addition to being paid a fixed amount to show and another, usually equal amount to win, each UFC event also awards four $50,000 Performance Bonuses. Usually, there is a Fight of the Night in which both fighters are given a performance bonus, and a performance bonus to the winner in two fights. "Performance Bonus" means the fight made you say "HOLY F@$%ING $#!@."

One of the primary differences between the UFC model and the boxing model is the depth of the card. Sometimes the greatest fight isn't the main event, or close to it. At UFC on ESPN+ 25, three of four bonuses went to the undercard.

$50,000 Fight of the Night
Scott Holtzman
defeated Jim Miller by Unanimous Decision (30-27, 29-28, 29-28)

$50,000 Performance of the Night
Jan Blachowicz defeated Corey Anderson by KO (Punch, Round 1, 3:08)

$50,000 Performance of the Night
Daniel Rodriguez defeated Tim Means by Submission (Guillotine Choke, Round 2, 3:37)

The next league event is UFC on ESPN+ 26, also known as UFC Auckland, UFC Fight Night 168, and UFC Fight Night: Felder vs. Hooker will be held on February 23 at Spark Arena in Auckland, New Zealand.[
