UFC on Versus 2: "Jones vs Matyushenko" from the San Diego Sports Arena in San Diego, Calif., 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 $40,000 each.
The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses, and it should come as no surprise who is leaving the "Golden State" with a little extra jingle in their pockets.
Japanese slugger Takanori Gomi awoke from his powerless slumber by putting the durable Tyson Griffin into an early one this evening to earn "Knockout of the Night" honors. It was a devastating blow that landed right on the "off" button, turning out Griffin's lights for the first time ever and cementing his position in the lightweight division in one fell swoop.
Newcomer Charles Oliveira took home "Submission of the Night," and almost the arm of Darren Elkins, with a super slick and quick first round finish. And middleweights Brian Stann and Mike Massenzio were rewarded for their three round back-and-forth war, which ended with an "All American" submission, to nab "Fight of the Night."
It's too bad the viewers at home didn't get to see it.
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on Versus 2: "Jones vs Matyushenko:"
- Knockout(s) of the Night — Takanori Gomi
- Submission of the Night — Charles Oliveira
- Fight of the Night — Brian Stann vs. Mike Massenzio
Again, each fighter received $40,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
