UFC 132 bonuses and awards for 'Cruz vs Faber' on July 2 in Las Vegas


UFC 132: "Cruz vs. Faber" from the MGM Grand Garden Arena 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 $75,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 24 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving the "Sin City" with a second sack of simoleons.

Tito Ortiz shocked the world by entering as a five-to-one underdog to Ryan Bader and not only saved his job and status in the world of mixed martial arts but also earned himself a "Submission of the Night," choking out "Darth" in the very first round.

"The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" is back ... in a big, big way.

Carlos Condit shot himself up the 170-pound ladder and wherever he lands, he'll do so with a lot of extra bacon thanks to his winning "Knockout of the Night" with an insane flying knee knockout of Dong Hyun Kim.

Finally, Dominick Cruz and Urijah Faber were awarded "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling five-round back-and-forth war of attrition that saw "The Dominator" defend his bantamweight title and avenge his only career loss all in one night.

It was a closely contested bout, though, and he may not have seen the last of "The California Kid."

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 132:

Submission of the Night -- Tito Ortiz

Knockout of the Night -- Carlos Condit

Fight of the Night -- Dominick Cruz vs. Urijah Faber

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.
