UFC fighter bonuses and awards for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale


The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale from "The Pearl" at the Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, 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 $25,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to three out of the 20 fighters on the card. And it may not surprise you which fighters are leaving "Sin City" with another round of green.

In addition to their base salaries, the UFC awarded lightweight standouts Frankie Edgar and Matt Veach "Fight of the Night" for their hard hitting, back-and-forth war that was short on rounds but long on excitement.

Not only did Edgar pocket the win, he further solidified his place among a very short group of worthy title contenders for the 155-pound strap in 2010.

Also bringing home the proverbial bacon was newly-crowned TUF 10 champion Roy Nelson. "Big Country" made his Octagon debut a memorable one, treating Brendan Schaub like fruit at a Gallagher concert and scoring "Knockout of the Night" with a single punch.

Rounding out the honors was Mark Bocek, who squeezed a "Submission of the Night" out of the previously undefeated newcomer Joe Brammer with a suffocating rear naked choke.

Here are the special fight bonuses for The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 10 Finale:

Fight of the Night — Frankie Edgar vs. Matt Veach
Knockout of the Night — Roy Nelson
Submission of the Night — Mark Bocek

Again, each fighter received $25,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
