Four men earned post-fight bonuses at UFC on Fuel TV 5, as Brad Pickett, Matt Wiman, Stefan Struve and Stipe Miocic each pocketed an additional $40,000 for their efforts Saturday at Capital FM Arena in Nottingham, England.

Pickett was awarded “Knockout of the Night” for his first-round stoppage of Yves Jabouin, and Wiman (Pictured, file photo) snatched “Submission of the Night” honors by tapping Paul Sass. Meanwhile, heavyweight headliners Struve and Miocic shared “Fight of the Night” bonuses for their back-and-forth battle that closed the Fuel TV broadcast.

Pickett lived up to his nickname of “One Punch” in his bantamweight showdown with Jabouin, starching his fellow World Extreme Cagefighting alumnus with a sledgehammer-like uppercut that turned out Jabouin’s lights in 3:40.

Sass put Wiman on the defensive early by executing a takedown and threatening with elbows from the top. A hard-fought ground battle would ensue, with both men acquiring and losing the advantage before Wiman caught Sass in a deep straight armbar from his back, handing the Brit his first career defeat.

As has become custom for the 7-foot Dutchman, Struve started slowly against Miocic, who took the center of the cage and continually rifled shots to the head and body in round one. “Skyscraper” came back strong in round two, however, using his jab effectively to set up a series of devastating uppercuts that ended Miocic’s night and secured Struve his fourth straight Octagon win.
