UFC Fight Night results: Alexander Gustafsson scores two bonuses

USA TODAY Sports

Alexander Gustafsson managed to score two bonus checks with his TKO win over Jimi Manuwa in London today.

Alexander Gustafsson got a lot accomplished today at the UFC Fight Night event in London, and he has been handsomely rewarded for it. The Swedish light heavyweight picked up a second-round TKO win over Jimi Manuwa in the main event of the card, and the bout was named fight of the night by UFC officials. That scored him and Manuwa $50,000 each and he also picked up another 50k as one of the two performance bonuses that are handed out.

The other performance bonus was given to Gunnar Nelson, who submitted Omari Akhmedov with a guillotine choke in their welterweight bout.

Many expected the flyweight bout between Brad Pickett and Neil Seery to pick up the fight of the night bonus, but the promotion elected to give it to the headliners instead. The check was the second straight for Gustafsson, who won the bonus for his bout with Jon Jones back in September.
