Tarec Saffiedine vs Hyun Gyu Lim UFC Singapore weighFor their outstanding performances at UFC Fight Night 34, Tarec Saffiedine, Hyun Gyu Lim, Max Holloway and Russell Doane earned $50,000 bonuses, a UFC spokesperson said.

In the main event, Saffiedine and Lim fought a heated stand-up battle that resulted in a Fight of the Night. The unanimous decision went to Saffiedine, who repeatedly landed leg kicks that figuratively left his opponent on one leg for the later stages of the bout.

For his technical knockout of Will Chope to close the preliminary card, Holloway earned Knockout of the Night. The Hawaiian fighter swarmed in on Chope in the second round with a barrage of punches, forcing the referee to step in to stop the punishment at the 2:27 mark of the round.

The Submission of the Night went to Brazilian jiu-jitsu blue belt Doane, who locked on a triangle choke on black belt Leandro Issa. Now that he has an extra $50,000 to take home, Doane said he is going to celebrate his win by spending his money to buy a dog.

UFC Fight Night 34 took place at the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore.
