Derrick Lewis earned a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his second-round knockout of Curtis Blaydes at UFC Vegas 19, and he is in good company.
The big boys are raking in the dough on Saturday night. Lewis is one of three heavyweights who earned performance bonuses. Tom Aspinal and Chris Daukus also earned $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses, and Aiemann Zahabi is the only lighter weight class fighter to cash a bonus check.
Aspinall and Daukus both secured main card finishes: the former submitted Andrei Arlovski with a rear-naked choke in round two, and the latter TKO'd Aleksei Olenik in less than two minutes.
Zahabi snapped a two-fight losing streak after knocking out Drak Rodriguez with a perfectly timed one-two combination on the undercard.
No Fight of the Night winner was awarded as the UFC instead doubled up on its Performance of the Night awards.
