Six fighters will leave UFC Vegas 16 with a little extra spending cash, including headliners Marvin Vettori and Jack Hermansson.
UFC President Dana White announced at the UFC Vegas 16 post-fight press conference that Vettori and Hermansson took Fight of the Night honors. Each man will receive a $50,000 bonus after exchanging a record-setting number of significant strikes in a UFC middleweight bout.
Additionally, Gabriel Benitez was presented with a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus after crumbling Justin Jaynes with a step-in knee to the chest. The second Performance of the Night bonus was presented to Jordan Leavitt for his hard-to-watch knockout slam of Matt Wiman.
You may have noticed six fighters mentioned in the opening sentence of this story. White also committed to signing bonus checks for Jamahal Hill, who scored a second-round TKO over Ovince Saint Preux, and Illia Topuria, who separated Damon Jackson from consciousness on the prelims.
