Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale bonuses and awards from Dec. 3 in Las Vegas

Ufc81-bonus_medium

The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 14 Finale from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, 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 $40,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 22 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "Sin City" with a second sack of simoleons.

John Dodson became the first ever bantamweight "Ultimate Fighter" when he knocked T.J. Dillashaw's block off in the first round of their 135-pound final. Six-figure contract? Check. Glass trophy? Check. "Knockout of the Night?"

Mate.

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash is Diego Brandao, who may have been a knockout artist when he was bumrushing fools in the TUF house but when he snatched up Dennis Bermudez's arm, he rolled it up and cranked like he had money on the line. The 40K for "Submission of the Night" makes it so.

Cushioning the blow a bit for Bermudez -- and making it all the sweeter for Brandao -- is the fact that these two easily put on the "Fight of the Night" and were rewarded accordingly for their efforts. All it took was two near knockouts and one super slick submission.

No biggie.

Here are the special fight bonuses for TUF 14 Finale:

Knockout of the Night -- John Dodson

Submission of the Night -- Diego Brandao

Fight of the Night -- Diego Brandao vs. Dennis Bermudez

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.
