UFC Paris: Post-fight Bonuses: Ciryl Gane wins war against Tai Tuivasa in ‘Fight of the Night.


Ciryl Gane and Tai Tuivasa brought the house down at UFC Paris, and for their efforts they were rewarded “Fight of the Night.”

The heavyweights each took home an additional $50,000 for a back-and-forth firefight that ended in the third with a vicious combination of punches from Gane, who bounced back from a title unifier against champ Francis Ngannou at UFC 270. Tuivasa may have been defeated by knockout, but his post-fight celebration with Gane won over the hostile crowd at Accor Arena.

Two additional fighters received bonuses for “Performance of the night”: Frenchman Benoit Saint Denis was awarded an extra $50,000 for stopping Gabriel Miranda. Prelim headliner Abus Magomedov, who had a perfect front kick to the head set him up for the knockout of Dustin Stolzfus, took home the exact same check.
