UFC San Antonio post-fight bonuses: Hooker stops Vick, takes POTN money

The AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas was home to a long and tedious night of fights that saw nine decisions before Dan Hooker broke the monotony. The card ended up with three (T)KOs, zero submissions and ten decisions.

Performances of the Night: Dan hooker, Walt Harris

Dan Hooker handed James Vick his third, straight loss tonight when he scored a first-round knockout over the Team Lloyd Irvin product. The two men went toe-to-toe, trading kicks and combinations until Hooker landed a hellacious left that put Vick on the canvas. Dan followed him down and landed two more, forcing the referee to step in and call a halt to the action. Dan Hooker gets the W and a $50,000 bonus.

Walt Harris took just 12 seconds to send Alexey Oleinik to the Underworld. Hopefully he put a coin in his hand for Charon. The two came out and traded a quick couple shots before Harris threw a massive jump knee followed by a straight left that put Oleinik down quick. Walt jumped down to finish up with a couple more before the ref jumped in to stop the fight. Walt Harris is victorious and takes home a $50,000 bonus.

Fight of the Night: Mario Bautista vs. Jin Soo Son

Mario Bautista and Jin Soo Son put on one helluva scrap for fight fans in San Antonio and around the world. The two would trade kicks, combinations and knees in a close first round that could have gone either way.

Round two was looking just like the first until Bautista dropped Son with a straight right. Son bounced back up to his feet, though, none the worse for wear, and continued going toe-to-toe with his opponent.

Round three was just a five-minute slugfest that was just bonkers to watch. Knees, elbows, all manner of combinations…this round was a slobberknocker from the jump. At the end of it all, Mario Bautista would take the decision and both men would leave with $50,000 bonuses.
