Paddy Pimblett and Molly McCann were the star attractions at UFC London, and they were both took home bonuses for their impressive performances.

The friends and teammates each took home $50,000 checks for “Performance of the Night,” according to fight-night bonuses announced by the promotion after Saturday’s event at The O2.

Afterward, McCann and Pimblett celebrated outside the octagon. McCann even carried Pimblett on her back after his emotional post-fight plea in support of mental health. The teammates have been on fire as of late, each winning three post-fight bonuses in as many fights.
