UFC 248 bonuses: Zhang Weili, Joanna Jedrzejczyk take home well deserved ‘Fight of the Night’ honors

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk put on one of the greatest fights in UFC history on Saturday night, and they were both rewarded after the show was over.

The co-main event was a no-brainer for “Fight of the Night” at UFC 248 as Zhang and Jedrzejczyk will each go home with a $50,000 bonus after going to war for five rounds.

Beneil Dariush earned a $50,000 bonus for “Performance of the Night” after he knocked out Drakkar Klose with a devastating left hand to put a stop to their fight in the second round.

Following a two-year long layoff, Sean O’Malley also picked up a “Performance of the Night” bonus following a TKO in his fight with Jose Quinonez.

The Dana White Contender Series veteran has now earned two post-fight bonuses in his first four bouts as part of the UFC roster.
