Dan Hooker and Walt Harris helped to save a San Antonio show that was dragged down by some dull decisions and they were rewarded handsomely for their efforts.

Both fighters walked out of AT&T Center on Saturday with an extra $50,000 in their pockets after winning Performance of the Night bonuses for their first-round knockout victories at UFC on ESPN 4.

Hooker picked up the first finish on the card after a stretch of nine consecutive decisions, hammering James Vick with a left hook and leaving him out cold 2:33 into round one.

Harris topped that effort by a large margin, starching Aleksei Oleinik in a mere 12 seconds to record the third-fastest knockout in UFC heavyweight history. This is the second straight Performance of the Night bonus Harris has received after KO’ing Sergey Spivak in 50 seconds this past May.

Earning the first UFC bonuses of their careers were preliminary card bantamweights Mario Bautista and Jin Soo Son. Bautista defeated Son by unanimous decision, but both received an extra $50,000 for earning the Fight of the Night after competing for three high-octane rounds.
