After dominating Cub Swanson for five rounds and finishing him with a timely rear naked choke at 4:56 of the fifth and final round - the latest finish in UFC history - Frankie Edgar was rewarded with one of the performance bonuses, earning an extra $50k for his efforts.

Paige VanZant was successful in her Octagon debut, defeating Kailin Curran by TKO on the UFC FIGHT PASS prelims. The two strawweights earned fight of the night honors, and Alexey Oliynyk earned the other performance bonus for his KO win against Jared Rosholt.

All four fighters earned $50k.

UFC Sr. Director of Public Relations Dave Sholler was joined on stage at the post fight press conference by seven fighters: Edgar, Joseph Benavidez, Edson Barboza, VanZant, Matt Wiman, Chico Camus, and Oliynyk.
