UFC Sydney bonuses: Tai Tuivasa earns Performance of the Night

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Sydney-Coulter vs Tuivasa Christopher Hyde-USA TODAY Sports

Tai Tuivasa’s pockets will be a little fatter after his big win Saturday night.

Tuivasa, who was making his UFC debut, delivered a memorable knockout over Rashad Coulter to earn a Performance of the Night bonus.

Nik Lentz earned the other Performance of the Night bonus for his second-round submission of former teammate Will Brooks.

Frank Camacho and Damien Brown earned Fight of the Night. The two lightweights, who were fighting at 160 pounds, took their slugfest to the judges with Camacho earning the split-decision win.

As a result of missing weight, Camacho won’t receive his half of the bonus.

All bonuses were $50,000.
