UFC 180 bonuses: Fabricio Werdum knockout earns $50K

Mo money, mo problems...

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

UFC 180: "Werdum vs. Hunt" from Mexico City, Mexico 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.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 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.

This time around, Fabricio Werdum and Kelvin Gastelum were given "Performance of the Night" bonuses for their knockout and submission victories over Mark Hunt and Jake Ellenberger, respectively.

The "Fight of the Night" award went to the back-and-forth war of attrition between Henry Briones and Guido Cannetti that saw the former score a second round rear-naked choke submission victory over the latter.

Here are the special UFC 180 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Fabricio Werdum

Performance of the Night -- Kelvin Gastelum

Fight of the Night -- Henry Briones vs. Guido Cannetti

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.
