The UFC’s new fight-night bonus system came into play Saturday night at UFC Fight Night 36.
Earning the “Performance of the Night” bonus was Erick Silva and Charles Oliveira. Both picked up an additional $50,000.
Silva knocked out Takenori Sato in the first round, while Oliveira defeated Andy Ogle to start the main card via submission.
The performance honor replaced both “Knockout” and “Submission of the Night,” which were previously used to award those that finished fights.
The “Fight of the Night” went to Lyoto Machida and Gegard Mousasi. Machida picked up the decision victory, and both fighters earned an additional $50,000.
