After a surprisingly exciting night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Gegard Mousasi (pictured), Anthony Johnson, Makwan Amirkhani and Kenny Robertson each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FOX: Gustafsson vs. Johnson.”
Instead of awarding a “Fight of the Night,” the UFC decided to issue four “Performance of the Night” checks instead.
Mousasi posted a TKO victory over Dan Henderson in the show’s co-featured attraction to collect an extra $50,000. Johnson not only left Sweden with next dibs at light heavyweight king Jon Jones’ crown, but his vicious TKO on Alexander Gustafsson also scored him a “Performance of the Night” check.
Amirkhani quickly disposed of Andy Ogle within eight seconds. Robertson blasted Sultan Aliev to take the final bonus check.
UFC on FOX 14 took place inside Tele2 Arena in Stockholm, Sweden.
Performances of the Night:
Anthony Johnson, Gegard Mousasi, Makwan Amirkhani and Kenny Robertson ($50,000/each)
