UFC 169: "Barao vs. Faber 2", from the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, 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 24 fighters on the card. And it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.
Abel Trujillo cleaned up with his performance against Jamie Varner, who was also compensated nicely. For their back-and-forth brawl, the two were awarded a hefty $75K for "Fight of the Night" while Trujillo was given $50K for "Knockout of the Night" honors.
There was no submission, so no bonus was given out for that award.
Here are the special UFC 169 bonuses:
Knockout of the Night -- Abel Trujillo
Submission of the Night -- XXX
Fight of the Night -- Abel Trujillo vs. Jamie Varner
Again, each fighter received $50,000 -- and in this case a bump to $75,000 -- extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as that information becomes available.
