New, comments

The UFC handed out its usual three bonus awards to fighters coming out of the UFC on FUEL TV 7: "Barao vs. McDonald" event earlier today (Sat., Feb. 16, 2013) in London, England, and all three were more than deserving.

UFC on FUEL TV 7: "Barao vs. McDonald" from Wembley Arena in London, 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 $50,000 each.

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

Although he wins the "Submission of the Night" award by default thanks to their being no other fights ending via that particular finish on the card, Renan Barao's main event arm-triangle choke tapout of Michael McDonald cannot be undersold.

Dude was impressive.

Even more impressive was preliminary card fighter Tom Watson, who, in addition to being the most popular was the most successful, earning both "Knockout of the Night" and "Fight of the Night" honors for his second round beatdown of Stanislav Nedkov.

Remember to always tune into Facebook or YouTube, folks. You might be missing something special.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on FUEL TV 7:

Submission of the Night -- Renan Barao

Knockout of the Night -- Tom Watson

Fight of the Night -- Tom Watson vs. Stanislav Nedkov

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
