After winning his final UFC bout, Chris Lytle left the Octagon $130,000 richer as UFC President Dana White awarded Lytle “Fight of the Night” and “Submission of the Night” honors for his third-round guillotine of Dan Hardy in Sunday’s UFC on Versus 5 main event.
Hardy also took home $65,000 for “Fight of the Night” after delivering a standup war before Lytle capitalized for the finish on a late takedown, while Donald Cerrone scored $65,000 for his “Knockout of the Night” over Charles Oliveira.
White first announced the bonuses on Twitter moments after Lytle stepped into the Octagon for the final time after announcing his retirement plans earlier in the day.
UFC on Versus 5 drew an attendance of 6,751 at the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for a live gate of $539,000.
