New, 3 comments

The ZUFFA brass handed out its usual post-fight bonus awards to select fighters coming out of the UFC 163 event last night (Sat., Aug. 3, 2013) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Check out who took home the extra coin for their efforts.

UFC 163: "Aldo vs. Korean Zombie" 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 $50,000 each.

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

With both Anthony Perosh and Sergio Moraes finishing their bouts against Vinny Magalhaes and Neil Magny in short order, one by knockout in 14 seconds and the other by submission in 3:13, it's no big shock they took home the "Knockout of the Night" (Perosh) and "Submission of the Night" (Moraes) bonuses.

Ian McCall may have had it rough personally of late but his troubles at home should be made more bearable after earning a decision victory over Iliarde Santos on top of winning "Fight of the Night" honors.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 163:

Knockout of the Night -- Anthony Perosh

Submission of the Night -- Sergio Moraes

Fight of the Night -- Ian McCall vs. Iliarde Santos

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.
