UFC 174 post-fight bonuses: Tae Hyun Bang earns 100k for KO win

Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports

Tae Hyun Bang secured $100,000 after his first UFC win was a spectacular KO win over Kajan Johnson.

The UFC returned to Vancouver for the first time since 2011, and while it was not the most entertaining fight card, it was one that featured several decent scraps and a few violent stoppages that warranted bonuses.

One of the more entertaining contests on the Vancouver fight card was between sophomore fighter Tae Hyun Bang and Kajan Johnson, which was featured on the preliminary portion of the fight card. The two battled it out for the better part of three round before Bang scored a spectacular one-punch knockout over Johnson. The win, which came at 2:01 of the third round, was caused by a right hand that sent the TUF Nations vet tumbling to the mat. For his incredible performance, Bang not only won Fight of the Night, but also took home one of the performance bonuses as well.

The second performance bonus went to Kiichi Kunimoto, who earned a rear-naked choke victory over Daniel Sarafian in the preliminary card headliner. It was a strong performance from Kunimoto, who now moves to 2-0 in the UFC.
