On Wednesday night, the UFC delivered a fantastic show to the fans at the Revel Casino Hotel in Atlantic City, New Jersey with UFC Fight Night 45, an eleven-fight card that delivered an incredible nine finishes.
All six of the main card bouts on the night were finished by either strikes or submission.
With so many impressive performances, UFC president Dana White had a tough choice when it came to handing out the $50,000 Fight Night bonuses for the event.
White announced on Twitter, before heading to Dublin, Ireland for this weekend’s show, that the winners of the bonuses were main event participant Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, Lucas Martins, John Lineker and Alptekin Ozkilic.
Tough night to pick bonuses but here we go FON- Ozkilic vs Lineker Performance Cerrone and Martins 50k each. Congrats
