UFC 138 bonuses and awards for 'Leben vs Munoz' on Nov. 5 in England


UFC 138: "Leben vs. Munoz" from the LG Arena in Birmingham, England, 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 $70,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 20 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "Second City" with a second sack of simoleons.

On a night that featured four submission finishes of the five main card fights, Terry Etim's was deemed the most impressive as he earned "Submission of the Night" by tapping Edward Faaloloto via rear-naked choke in all of 17 seconds.

Welcome back to the Octagon.

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash is Che Mills, who introduced himself on Facebook by viciously knocking out Chris Cope via stunning knees to the grill. Earning "Knockout of the Night" in his UFC debut in front of the English crowd was just icing on the proverbial cake.

Finally, Renan Barao and Brad Pickett took home "Fight of the Night" honors for their short but thrilling back-and-forth battled that resulted in the Brazilian subbing the Englishman inside the very first round. 17 wins in a row and it just keeps getting better.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 138:

Submission of the Night -- Terry Etim

Knockout of the Night -- Che Mills

Fight of the Night -- Renan Baroa vs. Brad Pickett

Again, each fighter received $70,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
