UFC fighter bonuses and awards for 'Vera vs Jones' on Versus


UFC on Versus 1: "Vera vs. Jones" from The 1STBANK Center in Broomfield, Colo., 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 $50,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses, but there was nothing standard about how it selected the winners.

John Howard, Junior dos Santos and Jon Jones all earned "Knockout of the Night" honors for their respective finishes. And Clay Guida -- who hasn't stopped an opponent in nearly two years (Samy Schiavo) -- took home "Submission of the Night" for choking out Shanon Gugerty.

No fighters were awarded with "Fight of the Night;" however, that doesn't mean that there was any shortage of action ... just ask Daniel Roberts, Gabriel Gonzaga and Brandon Vera.


Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on Versus 1: "Vera vs. Jones:"

  • Knockout(s) of the Night — John Howard, Junior dos Santos and Jon Jones
  • Submission of the Night — Clay Guida
  • Fight of the Night — N/A

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
