MMA: UFC 225-Whittaker vs Romero Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

The action certainly delivered last night (Sat., June 9, 2018) at UFC 225 live on pay-per-view (PPV) from inside United Center in Chicago, Ill., as UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker outlasted Cuban machine Yoel Romero in a five-round bloody classic.

In addition to the main event mayhem, Colby Covington walked away with the interim welterweight strap by suffocating Rafael dos Anjos, CM Punk got beat up by Mike Jackson for 15 minutes, Cutis Blaydes turned Alistair Overeem into a bloody mess, Anthony Smith kneed Rashad Evans into oblivion, and Charles Oliveira quickly choked out Clay Guida.

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 225 bonus winners below:

Fight of the Night: Robert Whittaker vs. Yoel Romero*

Performance of the Night: Curtis Blaydes

Performance of the Night: Charles Oliveira

*Because Yoel Romero missed weight he is ineligible for bonus money. Whittaker will get $100,000 instead.
