    UFC Fight Island 6 bonuses: Jessica Andrade, Jimmy Crute make list with first-round punch-outs

    Jessica Andrade added another bonus check to her impressive collection on Saturday.

    The former strawweight champion made an immediate impact on the 125-pound division as she crushed No. 1 contender Katlyn Chookagian with body shots to earn a TKO victory with five seconds remaining in the first round of the UFC Fight Island 6 co-main event. Andrade’s win earned her a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus (and maybe a shot at flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko), the eighth time she’s walked away with a five-figure Fight Night nod.

    Also receiving a Performance of the Night bonus was light heavyweight Jimmy Crute. The Australian needed a little over two minutes to KO Modestas Bukauskas and improve to 4-1 in the UFC.

    Fight of the Night honors went to debuting lightweights Mateusz Gamrot and Guram Kutateladze. It was Kutateladze who won a narrow split decision over the two-division KSW champion and though he lamented his own performance afterwards, both he and Gamrot will walk away with some extra pay.
