UFC 111: "St. Pierre vs. Hardy" from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, 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 $65,000 each.
The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 20 fighters on the card. And it may not surprise you which combatants are leaving the "Garden State" with a little extra green.
In addition to their base salaries, the UFC awarded light heavyweight competitors Jared Hamman and Rodney Wallace "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling three rounds of undercard action.
While "Shonuff the Master" has dropped his second straight fight via unanimous decision, his crowd pleasing brawl with Hamman got him some face time at the end of the evening's pay-per-view.
And a nice fat check for 65k.
Representing the 155-pound weight class was the resurgent Kurt Pellegrino. "Batman" survived a submission scare of his own to come back and tap out Fabricio Camoes with his slick "Submission of the Night" that came via rear naked choke in the second round.
Also bringing home the proverbial bacon was current UFC heavyweight number one contender Shane Carwin. "The Engineer" made his return to the Octagon a memorable one, turning Frank Mir inside-out to grab "Knockout of the Night" after putting Mir on his butt in the first round.
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 111:
Fight of the Night — Jared Hamman vs. Rodney Wallace
Submission of the Night — Kurt Pellegrino
Knockout of the Night — Shane Carwin
Again, each fighter received $65,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
