Cerrone earns extra $120,000 with double ‘of the night’ bonuses
Cerrone earned the $60,000 Knockout of the Night award for his first-round finish of Melvin Guillard, and he also collected the same amount for his half of the wild 76-second bout, which earned the duo the Fight of the Night.
The Submission of the Night was earned by Dennis Bermudez, who also overcame a rocky start to finish Tommy Hayden with a first-round guillotine. That was an easy decision for UFC brass, since it was the only tapout finish of the night.
Meanwhile, six of the 10 fights were finished by knockout or TKO.
