Mo' money, mo' problems...

TUF 19 Finale: "Edgar vs. Penn 3" from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, 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 three of the 20 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. "Fight of the Night" will still be awarded but the best knockout and submission will not earn any extra cash. Instead, there will be two "Performance of the Night" awards dished out.

Got it? Good.

This time around, Leandro Issa double dipped with both a "Performance" and "Fight of the Night" bonus after his thrilling third round submission victory over Jumabieke Tuerxun. Elsewhere, Adriano Martins earned "Performance of the Night" for his awesome knockout of Juan Manuel Puig.

Here are the special TUF 19 Finale bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Adriano Martins

Performance of the Night -- Leandro Issa

Fight of the Night -- Leandro Issa vs. Jumabieke Tuerxun

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.
