How would you react if you had just pocketed €50,000? That was UFC fighter Neil Seery's response to the question after he earned a big bonus off the back of his dramatic second round submission win over Jon Delos Reyes at UFC Fight Night Dublin in the 3 Arena last night.

The Dubliner applied a strong guillotine choke to beat the Brazilian and was given the Fight of the Night bonus as a result.

In the post-fight press conference Seery was visibly chuffed with his achievement.

"It’s feels great, I’m 50 grand up. How would you feel if you had 50 grand? Do you want a lend?," he laughed.

Seery also acknowledged that the massive crowd caused him to go a little bit gung ho in pursuit of the win.

"He got me with a knee in the ribs and he took the wind out of me there. I got caught by the crowd a little bit. The crowd started screaming so I started swinging. I got caught a little bit stupid"
