Dan Hooker and Paul Felder definitely earned their bonuses in the UFC Auckland main event.

The lightweights slugged it out for 25 minutes with Hooker ultimately scoring the split decision victory. Both lightweights were then transported to a local hospital for treatment following the five round battle.

The good news is Hooker and Felder won the post-fight bonus for “Fight of the Night” as announced by UFC officials on Saturday. Each fighter will take home $50,000 for the bonus.

The main event fighters have now earned a combined seven post fight bonuses between them.

Meanwhile, Jim Crute will enjoy an extra $50,000 bonus for “Performance of the Night” after he wrapped up a slick kimura submission win over Michał Oleksiejczuk in the co-main event.

Priscila Cachoeira took home the other $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus after she blasted through Shana Dobson with a first round knockout in the opening fight on the undercard.
