UFC 140 bonuses and awards for 'Jones vs Machida' from Toronto


UFC 140: "Jones vs. Machida" from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, 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 $75,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 22 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "The Great White North" with a second sack of simoleons.

"Submission of the Night" has never been a more obvious choice, as Frank Mir lined his pockets with cash by grabbing hold of Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira's arm and torquing it until it snapped out of its socket. UFC President Dana White called it "Submission of the Century."

I'm not arguing.

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash is Chan Sung Jung, who tied the record for fastest (official) knockout in UFC history by pasting Mark Hominick in just seven seconds. It took "The Korean Zombie" just seven seconds to earn 75K with the "Knockout of the Night."

Finally, Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones and Lyoto Machida were awarded "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling two round affair that saw the champ retain his title via sick standing guillotine. "The Dragon" was competitive in the opening frame but "Bones" showed exactly why he's the man up in this piece.

King Kong aint' got sh*t on Jones.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 140:

Submission of the Night -- Frank Mir

Knockout of the Night -- Chan Sung Jung

Fight of the Night -- Jon Jones vs. Lyoto Machida

Again, each fighter received $75,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
