UFC on FUEL Post-Fight Presser Recap

Read below to find out who won fight night bonuses at UFC on FUEL TV: Korean Zombie vs. Poirier.
Seven fighters attended the UFC on FUEL TV post-fight press conference: Chan Sung Jung, Dustin Poirier, Donald Cerrone, Tom Lawlor, Yves Jabouin, Igor Pokrajac and Amir Sadollah. UFC President Dana White missed his first fight in eleven years due to impending surgery, but provided commentary via his Twitter account.

Jung and Poirier earned Fight of the Night for their thrilling main event scrap. After a back-and-forth battle in which the momentum swung in each fighter's favor, Jung landed an uppercut in the fourth round that sent Poirier retreating toward the fence. Jung pursued, stuffed a Poirier takedown attempt, and secured a fight-ending d'arce choke. For his efforts, "The Korean Zombie" was also awarded Submission of the night.

Knockout of the Night went to Lawlor, who dropped veteran Jason MacDonald early in the first round. Lawlor, who turned 29 tonight, took home his third Fight Night bonus (after earning Fight of the Night for his battle with Aaron Simpson, and Submission of the Night for his victory over CB Dollaway). Each fighter received $40,000 for their bonuses (with Jung taking home $80,000 for his two bonuses).
