The ZUFFA brass handed out its usual post-fight bonus awards to select fighters coming out of the UFC on FUEL TV 9: "Mousasi vs. Latifi" event earlier today (Sat., April 6, 2013) in Stockholm, Sweden. See below for the list of additional payouts.

UFC on FUEL TV 9: "Mousasi vs. Latifi" from the Ericsson Globe Arena in Stockholm, Sweden, 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 $60,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 26 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.

Irish import and highly-touted featherweight prospect Conor McGregor lived up to the hype on fight night, scoring "Knockout of the Night" against Marcus Brimage in a lopsided affair. If you missed the "Prelims" portion of this card on Facebook, find the FUEL TV replay and get a glimpse at the future of this division.

Speaking of impressive finishes, Reza Madadi was nearly put out to pasture by Michael Johnson in the first round of their lightweight contest, but the former Ultimate Fighter (TUF) finalist couldn't seal the deal, allowing the hometown hero to roar back in the final frame and sink in a fight-ending D'Arce choke, good enough to garner "Submission of the Night."

There weren't any finishes when Mike Easton traded leather with Brad Pickett in their "Fight of the Night," but that would have robbed fans of the full 15 minutes they spent punching each other in the face. The scrappy bantamweights battled to a split decision in favor of "One Punch," but "The Hulk" can smash some of his bills with the extra green.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on FUEL TV 9:

Knockout of the Night -- Conor McGregor

Submission of the Night -- Reza Madadi

Fight of the Night -- Brad Pickett vs. Mike Easton

Again, each fighter received $60,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as that information becomes available.
