UFC light heavyweight Glover Teixeria showed the world that he’s still got it at 40, and he’s now $50,000 richer after his big win at UFC Jacksonville.

Teixeira took home a “Performance of the Night” bonus for his fifth-round stoppage of Anthony Smith, who took home early rounds in dominant fashion before withering under the Brazilian’s pressure.

The other “Performance of the Night” was Drew Dober, who delivered a breakout performance with a second-round stoppage of Alexander Hernandez on the ESPN+ main card.

“Fight of the Night” honors went to Brian Kelleher and Hunter Azure. The career bantamweights stepped up one division and went toe-to-toe before Kelleher landed a left hook that put out Azure in the second frame of the preliminary-card bout.

All bonus winners took home $50,000.
