UFC on ESPN+ 32 Bonuses: Four Fighters Nab Performance Checks

The UFC on ESPN+ 32 bonuses have been released.

On August 8th, the UFC held its second event in the month of August at the UFC Apex. The event’s preliminary action aired live on ESPN+. The main card also aired on ESPN+.

In the main event, Derrick Lewis and Aleksei Oleinik went at it in a heavyweight bout. The bout ended in the second round when Lewis knocked him down with a thunderous right hand and then followed up with strikes. 

The co-headliner saw middleweights Omari Akhmedov and Chris Weidman go one-on-one. Weidman ended up going 3-0 against his opponent with his decision victory. 

Kevin Holland earned a $50,000 bonus for “Performance of the Night” after KO’ing Joaquin Buckley. Also taking home bonus pay was Darren Stewart, who scored a first-round submission as a major underdog when he tapped out Maki Pitolo with a slick guillotine choke off his back. Also receiving a performance bonus was Gavin Tucker, who submitted Justin Jaynes in an upset.
