Despite setting a record for most split decisions on a card, UFC 222 delivered the action in waves last night (Sat., Mar. 3, 2018) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Not only did UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg turn in yet another blistering knockout finish over Invicta FC bantamweight champion Yana Kunitskaya, but undefeated featherweight contender Brian Ortega became the first fighter ever to finish former UFC champion Frankie Edgar, rising bantamweight prospect Sean O’Malley broke his foot in a victorious brawl with “Asian Sensation” Andre Soukhamthath, and UFC newcomer Alexander Hernandez bulldozed lightweight veteran Beneil Dariush with one punch.

In order to sift through the action and see which fighters took home an extra $50,000, we take a closer look at the official UFC 222 bonus winners below:
