UFC on FOX 5: Jorgensen, Albert and Edwards earn fight bonuses

UFC officials announced the bonus winners from the UFC on FOX 5 event that took place in Seattle, Washington.

Yves Edwards and John Albert earned $65,000 bonuses for their performances on Saturday night, and Scott Jorgensen took home $130,000 in bonus money.

Edwards took home the “Knockout of the Night” award for his knockout of Jeremy Stephens. It was the first time that Stephens had been knocked out in his MMA career. Stephens ate a punch that put him on the canvas and Edwards followed with punches and an elbow to bring a stop to the bout.

Jorgensen and Albert fought on the preliminary portion of the card, but the fight did air on the FX portion of the broadcast. Jorgensen and Albert fought in a back and forth affair that saw Jorgensen take Albert’s back with 10 seconds left in the bout. Jorgensen was able to sink in a rear naked choke and force Albert to tap with just one second remaining in the first round. Both fighters received the “Fight of the Night” award, and Jorgensen also took home the “Submission of the Night” award to double up for $130,000.
