UFC 134 bonuses and awards for 'Silva vs Okami' on Aug. 27 in Brazil


UFC 134: "Silva vs. Okami" from the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 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 $100,000 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 South America with a second sack of simoleons.

It's not surprise -- or at least it shouldn't be -- that Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira earned himself "Knockout of the Night" by surviving an early onslaught before coming back to put Brendan Schaub to sleep inside the very first round.

And he did so in front of his native people, the very first time "Minotauro" had fought in Brazil in his 40-fight career that has spanned over a decade.

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash for their thrilling three-round back-and-forth war of attrition are lightweight scrappers Edson Barboza and Ross Pearson, who earned their "Fight of the Night" bonus by trading blows for 15 minutes solid. By the time all was said and done, the Brazilian proved better than the Brit, as Barboza brought home a close split decision win.

And a fat stack of cash to go with it.

There were no submissions on the card, ironically enough, so UFC President Dana White gets to save some cash.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 134:

Knockout of the Night -- Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira

Fight of the Night -- Edson Barboza vs. Ross Pearson

Again, each fighter received $100,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
