UFC 119: "Mir vs. Cro Cop" from the Conseco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana., 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 $70,000 each.
The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to five out of the 22 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "Circle City" with second sack of simoleons.
What is surprising is that despite claiming the events only KO, former division champion Frank Mir was not awarded a "Knockout of the Night" bonus for his win over fellow heavyweight Mirko "Cro Cop." I guess UFC President Dana White is punishing him for the 14 minutes of agony that preceded it.
In its place, two "Fight of the Night" bonuses were named.
That left "Submission of the Night," which went to former TUF-guy CB Dollaway after "The Doberman" strangled Joe Doerksen into a first round tap during the "Prelims" special.
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 119:
Again, each fighter received $70,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
