UFC on Fox 11 bonuses: Donald Cerrone submission banks $50K

Mo money, mo problems...

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

UFC on Fox 11: "Werdum vs. Browne" from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida 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 26 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.

Errrr... pump the brakes. This is where I remind you the bonus structure has changed since these were last handed out. "Fight of the Night" will still be awarded but the best knockout and submission will no earn any extra cash. Instead, there will be two "Performance of the Night" awards dished out.

Got it? Good.

Today, Donald Cerrone and Alex White earned "performance" bonuses for their submission and knockout victories over Edson Barboza and Estevan Payan, respectively. Meanwhile, the thrilling Thiago Alves vs. Seth Baczynski bout, which saw the former defeat the latter via unanimous decision, was awarded "Fight of the Night" honors.

Here are the special UFC on Fox 11 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Donald Cerrone

Performance of the Night -- Alex White

Fight of the Night -- Thiago Alves vs. Seth Baczynski

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.
