Jones, Dunham, Grant and Swanson Pick Up UFC 152 Bonuses
By FCF Staff
Jon Jones not only continued his reign at UFC 152 Saturday night in Toronto, but the highly regarded fighter picked up a “Submission of the Night” bonus for his fourth round tap-out of Vitor Belfort.
Jones survived an early armbar attempt from Belfort and went on to batter the veteran for several rounds, before submitting the BJJ black belt with a keylock. Jones received an additional $65,000 for the bonus award.
“Fight of the Night” predictably went to TJ Grant and Evan Dunham, after the lightweights engaged in a thrilling and bloody slugfest. Grant earned a unanimous decision win in the bout, which was also likely his biggest victory to date.
Cub Swanson earned “Knockout of the Night” and an extra 65 grand for his first round stoppage of Charles Oliveira. The powerful striker has now recorded three straight stoppage wins to reinsert himself in the featherweight title shot mix.
