See who walked away with some extra change in their pocket following the awarding of the UFC 286 post-fight bonuses.

There was an eager anticipation for UFC 286, the UFC's first pay-per-view in London since UFC 204 in October 2016. This was especially so when it was headlined by native son Leon Edwards retaining the UFC welterweight championship in his trilogy bout with Kamaru Usman.

The O2 Arena in London was filled to capacity, with 17,588 cramming into the arena to watch UFC 286 go down, bringing in a gate of $8.58 million (or just over 7.04 million pounds).

This makes UFC 286 the highest-grossing single-night event in the history of the arena.

The UFC 286 co-main event bout between lightweight contenders Justin Gaethje and Rafael Fiziev was named the Fight of the Night, while performance bonuses went to Gunnar Nelson and Jake Hadley.

All four men walked away with an extra $50,000 for their efforts.

Gaethje and Fiziev had quite the active striking war, with Fiziev sporting a crimson mask by the end of the fight. Gaethje ultimately won the fight via majority decision.

Nelson, also competing on the pay-per-view main card, scored a submission of Bryan Barbarena late in the first round.

Meanwhile, Hadley, who competed on the early prelim card, needed just 61 seconds to drop Malcolm Gordon with a rocking body shot and finish him off. Hadley, an alumnus of Dana White's Contender Series, has now won two straight after dropping his Octagon debut.
