UFC hands out six bonuses after action-packed night in Boston

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

UFC and FOX Sports 1 couldn’t ask for a better way to kick off the action on their first show on the channel, so they decided to handle six bonuses following UFC Fight Night 26 in Boston.

Chael Sonnen and Michael McDonald both earned $50,000 for the best submissions of the night. The light heavyweight needed only one round to recover from back-to-back losses to Anderson Silva and Jon Jones, trapping Mauricio "Shogun" Rua in a guillotine with 13 seconds left on the clock.

In an outstanding contest, MacDonald submitted Brad Pickett with a triangle in the second round, and both won $50,000 for the "Fight of the Night".

Travis Browne and Matt Brown got extra $50,000 to their pockets for "Knockouts of the Night."

Browne became the first fighter to score a first-round knockout against Overeem since 2007, and he did that in beautiful fashion. After rocking the K-1 champion with multiple front kicks, he finished the heavyweight with punches.

Brown also impressed in his sixth win in a row, and he needed only 29 seconds to stop the dangerous Mike Pyle. Brown landed a right hook and followed with a knee to the jaw, putting Pyle to sleep quickly.
