Darren Stewart, Kevin Holland, Andrew Sanchez and Gavin Tucker all took home $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonuses for their work at UFC Fight Night 174.

Stewart made short work of Maki Pitolo in a middleweight clash, tapping his foe with a guillotine choke 3:41 into the opening stanza of their featured bout. It was the first submission victory of Stewart’s career.

Holland, meanwhile, snagged a performance award thanks to some precision striking, as he knocked out Joaquin Buckley in a preliminary middleweight affair. A long right hand from Holland floored Buckley and brought a halt to the contest 32 seconds into Round 3.

Elsewhere, Sanchez got some extra cash for authoring the first finish of his UFC tenure in a preliminary 185-pound showdown against Wellington Turman. “The Ultimate Fighter 23” winner dropped Turman with a two-punch combination and sealed the win with a barrage of hammerfists at the 4:14 mark of Round 1.

Finally, Tucker garnered the card’s final performance bonus thanks to a submission of Justin Jaynes in a preliminary featherweight tilt. Tucker rallied from being dropped in Round 1 to wear his opponent down with volume striking before sinking in a rear-naked choke for the tapout 1:43 into Round 3.
