Color me jealous, people.
At the UFC 171 post-fight presser, Dana White announced that – on top of the $50,000 in cold hard cash that they already earn – any fighter who wins a bonus at a UFC event will also be eligible to win a Harley-Davidson motorcycle.
That’s right, people. 50 grand and a Harley, for what basically boils down to assault. This is the greatest sport ever invented.
Fans will decide the winner of said Harley by voting on the UFC’s official Facebook page after each UFC event, and (as stated earlier), any fighter who wins a bonus that night will be eligible to win him or herself a Harley. UFC 171 was the first event to partake in the contest, and newly-crowned welterweight champion Johny Hendricks has also won himself a brrraaaannnd…. neeeeeewww…. moooooootorcycleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
*Ahem*… sorry about that.
In all seriousness, this is a great contest, and a well-earned bonus for the fighters who don’t just fight “not to lose”. The competitors who step into that cage and fight their hearts out, giving the fans their money’s worth and putting their health on the line while doing so… well, they deserve all the money, prizes, accolades and fame that they receive.
Kudos, UFC and Harley-Davidson. Nice job.Dana White, Harley-Davidson, johny hendricks, mma, MMA NEWS, ufc, ufc 171, ufc news
