White announced after Saturday’s pay-per-view event that almost every finisher on Saturday’s card – nine in total – would be awarded a “Performance of the Night” bonus worth $50,000.

The remaining finish, a scrap between main card combatants Dricus Du Plessis and Darren Till, was awarded “Fight of the Night” with both taking home an additional $50,000. After White blasted the fighters of the main and co-main, the award wasn’t a surprise.
