UFC officials just announced that they have given away $70,000 in “Fight Night Bonuses” to three fighters who took part in tonight’s event.
Earning “Submission of the Night” was Stefan Struve and instead of handing out a “Fight of the Night” bonus the UFC brass opted to give both Dan Hardy and Roy Nelson “Knockout of the Night” for their first round KO victories.
In a last minute decision the UFC also decided to give Paul Sass “Submission of the Night” as well for his first round victory over Jacob Volkmann.
