UFC 254 bonuses: Magomed Ankalaev leads $50K winners for KO of Cutelaba

This year’s final trip to “Fight Island” delivered as usual earlier today (Sat., Oct. 24, 2020) at UFC 254 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Flash Forum in Abu Dhabi, U.A.E., as undefeated UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov crushed Justin Gaethje via second-round submission before announcing his retirement from MMA.

In addition to the memorable main event, former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker knocked off red-hot contender Jared Cannonier in a crucial co-headliner, and Alexander Volkov put a stop to heavyweight finisher Walt Harris with a nasty second-round TKO.

Fight fans also got to see a monstrous knockout finish by Magomed Ankalaev in his light heavyweight rematch with Ion Cutelaba, as well as a bantamweight barn burner between rising contenders Casey Kenney and Nathaniel Wood, which Kenney won via decision.

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 254 bonus winners below:
