Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 Finale bonuses and awards for 'Guida vs Pettis' on June 4

New, comments


The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 13 Finale from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, 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 $40,000 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 "Sin City" with a second sack of simoleons.

The unheralded Reuben Duran might as well have been nameless before tonight but he's going (going) back (back) to Cali (Cali) $40 grand richer thanks to his "Submission of the Night" winning third-round rear-naked choke of Francisco Rivera. "The Future" avoided a few guillotines before going all geometrical on "Cisco" to earn his first Octagon victory.

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash is Anthony Ferguson, who not only earned himself a six-figure contract with the UFC by winning TUF 13 but also the coveted "Knockout of the Night" bonus. His one-hitter quitter put "Stripper" Ramsey Nijem out cold.

Welcome to the big leagues, fellas.

Finally, Kyle Kingsbury and Fabio Maldonado were awarded "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling, back-and-forth war of attrition that saw "Kingsbu" outlast his Brazilian foe en route to earning himself a three-round unanimous decision victory. That's four in a row for the quiet light heavyweight, two of which have earned him bonus awards.

Not bad.

Here are the special fight bonuses for TUF 13 Finale:

Fight of the Night -- Fabio Maldonado vs. Kyle Kingsbury

Submission of the Night -- Reuben Duran

Knockout of the Night -- Anthony Ferguson

Again, each fighter received $40,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
