Fight Night Auckland Post Fight Bonus Recap

It was an exciting night of fights in Auckland, New Zealand with six of the 10 fights ending in a submission or knockout finish.

UFC President Dana White tweeted after the event congratulating all the fighters, and said it was difficult to pick performance bonus winners.

After all was said and done, the fight of the night bonus went to the card's opening bout between Gian Villante and Sean O'Connell - a three-round slugfest that went to Villante by decision. 

Nate "The Great" Marquardt and Charles Oliveira were awarded the performance bonuses for their submission victories. Marquardt pulled off an arm bar against James Te Huna in the first round, and Oliveira became the first person to submit Hatsu Hioki with an amazing choke.

All four fighters will receive $50,000 bonuses.

Five fighters attended the post fight press conference: Marquardt, Oliveira, Jared Rosholt, Dan Hooker, and Robert Whittaker.
