Dustin Poirier, Dan Hooker and All Payout Bonuses from UFC on ESPN 12 Card

Dustin Poirier defeated Dan Hooker by unanimous decision at UFC on ESPN 12 on Saturday, but both took home an extra $50,000 bonus for contesting the Fight of the Night, per Steven Marrocco of MMA Fighting.

Julian Erosa and Kay Hansen also won Performances of the Night bonuses, each earning a victory with a third-round submission.

Erosa used a D'Arce choke to earn a tap out from Sean Woodson, while Hansen used an armbar to win her UFC debut over Jinh Yu Frey.

Poirier and Hooker entered as two of the top-five contenders in the lightweight division, and each fighter caused significant damage to the other with an array of punches, kicks and more.

Per Jay Pettry of Sherdog, Poirier has earned a performance bonus in six of his past eight fights and ranks tied for second in UFC history with seven career Fight of the Night honors, trailing only Nate Diaz.
