Vinny Magalhaes: “I’m waiting for my check”, Thinks He Should Get Sub Of Night Bonus Over Jones | UFC NEWS

“I’ll be honest, it’s not just because I lost $65,000 dollars. It’s not because I’m not going to see that. Looking at the moves as a technician, judging as a technician, as a professional, as a grappler, my move was ten times more difficult (that what Jones did to Belfort), and you know, way more impressive than his move. Maybe that’s how people judge. Maybe they judge how big the fight is, maybe they judge the fighter as well, who knows?”

“So, I’m just waiting for my check. I’m just gonna be waiting two or three weeks, I’m going to be really hopeful. Here’s the thing too, it’s not just you, there’s a lot of people saying I should have got that bonus. I’m sure [Dana] somehow is going to pay me for that. Likely, it’s not going to be 65,000 dollars, but I’m sure he’s going to pay me somehow. Just give me a fight, I don’t care.”

Vinny Magalhaes made a triumphant return to the UFC last weekend with his submission victory over Igor Pokrajac at UFC 152. In this interview with MMAFightCorner, he talks about why he feels he should have been awarded the “Submission of the Night” bonus over Jon Jones.

He also discussed his reaction towards Igor’s anti-grappling comments, why he thinks Matt Hamill is a good next fight and more. Hop to page two to check out the rest of the interview highlights.
