UFC Fight Night 109 bonuses: Alexander Gustafsson, Glover Teixeira bank extra $50,000 after Stockholm slugfest

The dust has barely settled on UFC Fight Night 109, which means it's time to honor those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights earlier today (Sun., May 28, 2017) inside Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden. Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 26 fighters on the Fox Sports 1 card. Among the men going home with an extra $50,000 in his pocket is Alexander Gustafsson, who put on a masterful performance after dominating and subsequently knocking out Glover Teixeira in the final round (watch video highlights here).

For his part in the five-round war, Glover also walked away with an extra $50K.

Also, Damir Hadzovic and Bojan Velickovic scored some extra coin for their respective knockouts over Marcin Held and Nico Musoke (which you can see here and here).

Here are the special UFC Fight Night 109 bonuses:

Alexander Gustafsson vs. Glover Teixeira: Fight of the Night

Damir Hadzovic: Performance of the Night

Bojan Velickovic: Performance of the Night

Again, each bonused fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which will likely be released later this week.
