Justin Gaethje (20-2), Edson Barboza (20-7), Jack Hermansson (19-4) and Paul Craig (11-3) each earned $50,000 bonuses for their performances at Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 2 event.
Gaethje and Barboza earned the “Fight of the Night,” while Hermansson and Craig each won “Performance of the Night” honors.
Jack Hermansson needed no invitation, submitting former two-division WSOF champion David Branch in the first minute of their bout. Hermansson caught Branch in a guillotine choke, then made it look easy to force the tap.
Paul Craig and Kennedy Nzechukwu were in the final round, when Craig managed to pull a triangle choke with 40 seconds on the clock, claiming his 3rd UFC victory.w
