UFC 86: "Jackson vs. Griffin" at the at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 5 has come to a close. And even though the main card as a whole lacked sizzle, the main event of the evening provided all the drama and fireworks that were expected.
Unsurprisingly, the promotion rewarded Quinton "Rampage" Jackson and Forrest Griffin, as well as others, for their outstanding performances with cold hard cash.
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 86:
Fight of the Night: Forrest Griffin vs. Rampage Jackson
Submission of the Night: Cole Miller
Knockout of the Night: Melvin Guillard
Each fighter received $60,000 for their efforts in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as humanly possible.
It’s interesting that Guillard pocketed the extra coin, considering his roller coaster existence in the promotion during the past 18 months. He looked scary powerful in his 36-second destruction of Dennis Siver. Has he finally put it all together or will inconsistency flare up his next time out?
Time will tell.
Congratulations goes out to Miller who submitted a very talented Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt -- Jorge Gurgel might be a lot of things but he is not easy to finish.
