UFC on Fuel TV LogoThe UFC’s usual post-fight bonuses were about as easy as it gets at UFC on Fuel TV 3 on Tuesday night in Fairfax, Va.

Not only did Chan Sung Jung put himself in position to be considered the top contender for the UFC featherweight championship following Jose Aldo vs. Erik Koch at UFC 149 in July, but he also earned an extra $80,000 in post-fight bonuses.

The UFC handed out bonuses of $40,000 each on Tuesday night, but Jung took home two of them.

He and Dustin Poirier went toe-to-toe for more than three rounds, putting on the exciting type of battle that fans have come to expect out of the featherweight division. They put on enough of a fight that they earned the Fight of the Night honors.

But after the first three rounds were over, Jung scored his second bonus, the Submission of the Night.

He rocked Poirier with punches, but then locked on a D’Arce choke when Poirier came shooting off of the fence. Jung put Poirier to sleep, winning the fight and another $40,000.

Tom Lawlor opened the Fuel TV broadcast spectacular fashion, putting Canadian fighter Jason MacDonald down and out in the first 50 seconds of their fight, earning the Knockout of the Night honors.
