UFC 108: "Evans vs. Silva" from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, has officially wrapped, which means that it’s time for those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights to get a little extra grease for their efforts.
To the tune of $50,000 each.
The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 20 fighters on the card. And it may not surprise you which combatants are leaving "Sin City" with a little extra green.
In addition to their base salaries, the UFC awarded lightweight competitors Sam Stout and Joe Lauzon "Fight of the Night" for their hard hitting, back-and-forth war. "Hands of Stone" was caught between a rock and a hard place early on, but turned up the heat and eventually outpointed the returning "J-Lau."
Also representing the 155-pound weight class was staunch jiu-jitsu specialist Cole Miller. "Magrino" downgraded Dan Lauzon with his slick "Submission of the Night" that came via inverted triangle in the first round.
Also bringing home the proverbial bacon was UFC sophomore Paul Daley. "Semtex" made his second Octagon appearance a memorable one, spot-welding his fist to the jaw of Dustin Hazelett to grab "Knockout of the Night" after putting "McLovin'" on his butt in the first round.
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 108:
Fight of the Night — Sam Stout and Joe Lauzon
Submission of the Night — Cole Miller
Knockout of the Night — Paul Daley
Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
"Evans vs. Silva" drew 13,255 attendees for an approximate live gate of $2 million, placing it tenth on the list of top attendances at the MGM Grand -- just behind 2005's UFC 54: "Boiling Point" -- but above 2008's UFC 98: "Evans vs Machida."
