Ufc81-bonus_medium

UFC on Versus 6: "Cruz vs. Johnson" from the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. has officially wrapped, which means 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 20 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving the nation's capital with a second sack of simoleons.

Anthony Johnson earned "Knockout of the Night" thanks to first round head kick destruction of Charlie Brenneman. It may have been a controversial stoppage but that extra $65K is just as green and spends the same. 

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash is Stefan Struve, who skillfully manipulated his lengthy limbs to triangle choke his way past pint-sized brawler Pat Barry, earning "Submission of the Night" in the process. Surviving a powerbomb may have helped earn him the extra dough.

Finally, Matt Wiman and Mac Danzig were awarded "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling, back-and-forth war of attrition that saw the "Handsome" one prove once and for all that he is, in fact, the better man.

No fluke here.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on Versus 6:

Knockout of the Night -- Anthony Johnson

Submission of the Night -- Stefan Struve

Fight of the Night -- Matt Wiman vs. Mac Danzig

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.
