Ufc81-bonus_medium

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 Finale from "The Pearl" at the Palms Resort and Casino 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 $25,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to three out of the 20 fighters on the card. And it may not surprise you which fighters are leaving "Sin City" with another round of green.

In addition to their base salaries, the UFC awarded light heavyweight brawlers Keith Jardine and Matt Hamill "Fight of the Night" for their three round bloodbath that saw "The Hammer" squeak by with a majority decision win.

Also bringing home the proverbial bacon was newly-crowned TUF 11 champion Court McGee. "Crusher" made his Octagon debut a memorable one, strangling Kris McCray in the second round to win the glass trophy and "Submission of the Night."

Rounding out the honors was Chris Leben, who scored a "Knockout of the Night" over the previously undefeated wrestler Aaron Simpson to climb back into middleweight relevancy.

Here are the special fight bonuses for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 11 Finale:

Fight of the Night — Keith Jardine vs. Matt Hamill
Submission of the Night — Court McGee
Knockout of the Night — Chris Leben

Again, each fighter received $25,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
