UFC Fight Night 73 in Nashville featured a bunch of fights that were finished before the final horn. This naturally leads to some debate over what fighters should claim the performance bonuses. In the end, the fight of the night went to the main event, while a main card and an undercard submission win earned the respective fighters a cool $50,000. Here’s how it went down.

Ovince Saint Preux was submitted by Glover Teixeira in the headliner, but almost had the fight won in a crazy back-and-forth first round. The bout wasn’t exactly fireworks after that, but the first stanza combined with a lack of action-packed fights on the rest of the card earned the two men their checks.
As mentioned, the other two checks went to Amanda Nunes and Marlon Vera. Nunes picked up a surprising first-round submission win over Olympic medalist Sara McMann, while Vera submitted Roman Salazar with a triangle armbar on the Fight Pass undercard.
