UFC On FOX 2 | Johnson, Oliveira, Dunham and Lentz Earn $65K “Fight Night” Bonuses

UFC on FOX 2 took place tonight from the sold-out United Center in Chicago.

In the main event, Phil Davis squared off with Rashad Evans for the number one contender seat in the UFC’s light-heavyweight division ruled over by Jon Jones and Evans took the win. The co-feature of the evening was a middleweight number one contender bout between Michael Bisping and Chael Sonnen and Sonnen took the victory. The televised main card aired for free on FOX and the preliminary portion was delegated to FUEL TV.

However, Evans and Sonnen were not the only winners of the night with perks for their performances.

For their parts on the evening’s card the UFC gave four-fighters $65,000 bonuses for their performances. These bonuses went solely to preliminary card fighters.

Nik Lents and Evan Dunham earned “Fight of the Night” honors, Lavar Johnson took home “Knockout of the Night” and Charles Oliveira took home “Submission of the Night.”
