You don’t often see too many emotions from the mild-mannered Tom Aspinall, but he couldn’t help but react when he found out he was going to be $50,000 richer.

Aspinall scored his seventh straight victory when he stopped Serghei Spivac in the first round in the UFC Fight Night 191 co-main event Saturday and was delivered some great news during his post-fight photo session.

When the heavyweight prospect was told he earned a “Performance of the Night” bonus, his jump for joy quickly turned into tears.

That performance earned him a POTN bonus

The Team Kaobon fighter has finished all 11 of his pro wins and has earned three bonuses in his four UFC wins. Following his finish of Spivac, Aspinall called out Blagoy Ivanov, who’s ranked one spot ahead of him in the UFC’s heavyweight rankings.
