The winners of the bonus at the UFC 277 event are known

Although the UFC 277 event did not receive nearly as much attention as the PPV event that took place at the beginning of the month (UFC 276), in the end, it was a very exciting event with a handful of stops and good performances.

Fighters like Drew Dober, Nicolae Negumereanu, and Michael Morales achieved big victories by TKO in the opening part of the show, and we saw four TKOs in the five matches of the main card. It wasn't easy to decide who deserved bonuses, but the promotion finally decided to reward four fighters with $50,000.

Alexandre Pantoja certainly deserved the bonus with a fantastic performance against Alex Perez. The fourth-ranked UFC flyweight fighter decided to make the best possible impression in order to establish himself as the next challenger, and from the first second, he occupied the middle of the cage and violently attacked Perez.

It didn't take long for the Brazilian to take his opponent's back, and with a neck lock, he forced him to surrender after only 91 seconds of the fight. It was one of the best performances of his career so far, and for that, he was rewarded with his fourth overall UFC bonus (3 POTN, 1 FOTN).

Drew Dober also received a bonus for the best performance. The American lightweight fighter is far from performing boring matches and is always fun to watch. Today was no different, and he defeated Rafael Alves by knockout in the third round.

Three times Dober was awarded the bonus for the best performance, and twice he participated in the fight of the night. So, by winning against Alves for the fifth time in his career, he received a UFC bonus. The remaining two winners of the $50,000 bonus are Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France.

They are rewarded with a bonus awarded to the actors of the best fight of the night. Their match for the interim flyweight champion lived up to expectations and we watched almost 15 minutes of action. Moreno ended up winning by TKO, but KKF will go home richer by an additional $50,000 for consolation.

Moreno has won the bonus in each of his last four appearances. He won it three times for fight of the night and once for performance. In total, he won the UFC bonus six times. Kai Kara-France has also been a bonus machine lately.

Four bonuses in his last five appearances in his performance. He won it twice for participation in the fight of the night, and twice for the best performance.
