Robert Whittaker claims US$100,000 bonus for Fight of the Night

With opponent Yoel Romero ineligible, Australia’s Robert Whittaker claimed the full US$100,000 bonus as a result of his Fight of the Night bout at UFC 225.

The promotion announced the bonuses with Charles Oliveira and Curtis Blaydes also taking home US$50,000 bonuses for performance of the nights.

Whittaker double-dipped on the bonus after his opponent Yoel Romero had failed to make weight deeming him ineligible for bonuses at the end of the event.

Robert Whittaker and Yoel Romero both were taken to hospital after their UFC 225 war and skipped the post-fight press-conference.
