MMA: UFC Fight Night-Musoke vs Velickovic Per Haljestam-USA TODAY Sports

Two preliminary fighters picked up extra cash after impressive wins at UFC Fight Night 109.

Bojan Velickovic and Damir Hadzovic were down in the scorecards at Sunday’s event, but scored third-round finishes in Stockholm, Sweden, to earn the Performance of the Night bonus.

Velickovic was less than 30 seconds away from probably losing a decision to Niko Musoke, but scored the knockout before the final bell. Hadzovic came back from two tough rounds against Marcin Held to land a perfectly-timed knee just seven seconds into the final round to get the victory.

The Fight of the Night $50,000 check was given to the headliners Alexander Gustafsson and Glover Teixeira. The Brazilian was dominated for more than 20 minutes and knocked out in the fifth round, but showed a lot of heart surviving Gustafsson’s vicious uppercuts.
