UFC 114: "Rampage vs. Evans" 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 $65,000 each.
The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 22 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 light heavyweight competitors Jason Brilz and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira "Fight of the Night" for their three rounds of back-and-forth action.
Brilz probably didn't get the decision he deserved, but he certainly earned a lot of respect (and a nice fat check) for taking it right to the Brazilian despite stepping in for Forrest Griffin on such short notice.
Representing the 185-pound weight class was the resurgent Ryan Jensen. The Nebraskan got back into the win column by locking in a guillotine choke on Jesse Forbes and squeezing out a windfall of cash for his slick "Submission of the Night."
Also bringing home the proverbial bacon was miracle man Mike Russow. The hard-headed Chicago cop survived two rounds of abuse at the hands of Todd Duffee only to stiffen him like a freezer-burnt popsicle and capture "Knockout of the Night."
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 114:
Fight of the Night — Jason Brilz vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Submission of the Night — Ryan Jensen
Knockout of the Night — Mike Russow
Again, each fighter received $65,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
