When you become just the second fighter in UFC history to hold two weight-class championships at the same time, and do so via knockout while going up in weight, you’ve probably earned yourself a Performance of the Night bonus.
And it earned him an extra $50,000 as one of UFC 226’s postfight bonus winners.
Light heavyweight Rountree Jr. earned his for a first-round knockout of kickboxing star Gokhan Saki; Pettis, the former UFC and WEC lightweight champ, got a bonus for his submission of Michael Chiesa; and Costa got his for a knockout of Uriah Hall in a middleweight fight.
There was no Fight of the Night awarded on the evening.
The UFC also announced a sellout crowd of 17,464 at T-Mobile Arena for a paid gate of $5,677,238.21.
