UFC on Versus 5 “Fight Night” bonuses: Lytle, Hardy and Cerrone each pick up $65k

With a total of 10 fight night bonuses in his UFC career, Chris Lytle retires after earning over half a million dollars just in bonus money.

Chris Lytle made the most of his last fight in the UFC, winning both the “Submission of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” awards, which puts him over $500,000 in bonus money in his career, spanning an incredible ten “Fight Night” awards.

He shares “Fight of the Night” honors with Dan Hardy, who engaged Lytle in a back-and-forth stand up war of attrition until late in the third round. Lytle then capitalized on a Hardy take down to secure a fight-ending guillotine choke that gave him an additional $65,000 for “Submission of the Night.

Donald Cerrone, meanwhile, made short work of the fast-rising young brazilian phenom, Charles Oliveira to capture his “Knockout of the Night” award. Cerrone earned the TKO in the first, after landing a stiff shot to the body that dropped Oliveira. Cerrone added a clipping knee as Oliveira went to the mat, and then finished up with a flurry of unanswered blows from the top, prompting the referee to intervene and stop the fight.
