Riley, Gurgel, Hazelett, and Stephens Earn UFC 91 Bonuses

Dustin Hazelett Submits Tamdan McCrory at UFC 91The UFC has awarded Aaron Riley, Jorge Gurgel, Dustin Hazelett, and Jeremy Stephens with $60,000 bonuses for their performances on Saturday at UFC 91: Couture vs. Lesnar in Las Vegas.

Riley and Gurgel took home “Fight of the Night” honors for their standup brawl that saw Riley unanimously edge Gurgel 29-28 on the judge’s score cards.

Hazelett earned “Submission of the Night” by transitioning from an omoplata to an armbar to force opponent Tamdan McCrory to tap in the opening round of their welterweight bout.

Stephens received the “Knockout of the Night” bonus for his vicious uppercut KO of newcomer Rafael dos Anjos.

Both Riley-Gurgel and Stephens-dos Anjos took place on the unaired preliminary card but, like the entire fight card, made the pay-per-view broadcast as all but the “Fight of the Night” failed to go the distance.
