Fight Night Japan: Post-fight bonus recap

 
Performance bonuses: Josh Barnett, Uriah Hall, Diego Brandao and Keita Nakamura

• Barnett put in a historic performance in his five-round battle with Roy Nelson in the main event. 'The Warmaster' connected with 95 significant clinch strikes against Nelson, a new single-fight UFC record, en-route to victory and an extra bonus for his efforts. His 146 significant strikes mark a new single-fight heavyweight record.

• You'll see Uriah Hall's winning effort in highlight reels for a while - his spinning back kick and flying knee combination 25 seconds into the second round got him the victory over Gegard Mousasi.

• Diego Brandao didn't need much time - 28 seconds in total - to get past Katsunori Kikuno.

• And last, but certainly not least, Keita Nakamura survived a punishing first two rounds before earning a comeback victory by putting a rear naked choke on Li Jingliang for the win in the last bout of the prelims.

• All four fighters earn an additional $50k.
