UFC 161 bonuses and awards: James Krause banks $100K

The ZUFFA brass handed out its usual post-fight bonus awards to select fighters coming out of the UFC 161 event last night (Sat., June 15, 2013) in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Check out who took home the extra coin for their efforts.


UFC 161: "Evans vs. Henderson" from the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, 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 $50,000 each.

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

If you didn't bother to tune in to the FX broadcast portion of the card, you missed out on both the "Fight of the Night" and the "Submission of the Night." It just so happens they came from the very same bout, as James Krause was handsomely rewarded for choking out Sam Stout with just 13 seconds left in their back-and-forth battle.

He deserves it.

The "Knockout of the Night" was an easy choice considering only one of the 11 fights on the card ended via that particular method, that being Shawn Jordan's 59-second TKO stoppage of Pat Barry.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 161:

Knockout of the Night -- Shawn Jordan

Submission of the Night -- James Krause

Fight of the Night -- James Krause vs. Sam Stout

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 that information becomes available.
