UFC 85 bonuses for 'Bedlam' PPV fights

ufc 85 bonuses
UFC 85: "Bedlam" at the O2 Arena in London, England, on Saturday, June 7 electrified fans with a mix of exciting finishes -- even the two main card bouts that went the distance were not snoozers.

And as is the case with all recent UFC shows the promotion rewarded certain fighters for their outstanding performances with cold hard cash.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 85:

Knockout of the Night -- Thiago Alves
Submission of the Night -- Kevin Burns
Fight of the Night -- Matt Wiman and Thiago Tavares

Each fighter received $50,000 each for their efforts in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will more than likely not learn because the show took place overseas.

It's interesting that Alves was greased the extra scratch, considering he failed to make weight -- something that never sits well with UFC President Dana White and the rest of the brass. Perhaps he made up for it with yet another crushing knee to end a fight in highlight-reel fashion.

Congratulations goes out to Burns who submitted a very talented Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt in his Octagon debut ... on short notice.
