In addition to his fight purse, Donald Cerrone earned an extra $120,000 for his highlight reel, stoppage win over Melvin Guillard at UFC 150. Cerrone received “Knockout of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” for the memorable win, which saw the lightweight come from behind to stop Guillard with a headkick and a follow up punch.
Cerrone, who has now won two straight fights since losing to Nate Diaz in December, received $60,000 for each award.
Guillard also picked up an extra 60 grand for his role in the “Fight of the Night.”
“Submission of the Night” and 60,000 dollars went to Dennis Bermudez, who caught featherweight Tommy Hayden with a standing guillotine choke in the first round.
The UFC 150 card was hosted by Denver, Colorado’s Pepsi Center.
