Following an exciting night of mixed martial arts (MMA) action as part of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 22 Finale card, which emanated from inside "The Chelsea" at The Cosmopolitan last night (Fri., Dec. 11, 2015) in Las Vegas, Nevada, it's now time to honor those fighters who went above and beyond the call of duty.
Check out the full TUF 22 Finale results here.
Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) doled out its customary post-fight monetary bonuses to three of the 20 fighters on the evening's card. Among those who walked away with extra $50,000 checks are Frankie Edgar, Tony Ferguson (x2) and Edson Barboza.
"The Answer" needed just a few minutes to dispose of Chad Mendes in their Featherweight main event, dropping "Money" with a heat-seeking left hook at the 2:48 mark of round one.
Earlier in the evening, "El Cucuy" battered and bruised Edson Barboza on the feet and on the ground before latching onto a D'Arce choke for the tap in round two, resulting in not one, but two post-fight bonuses for the former.
Here are TUF 22 Finale bonuses:
Fight of the Night --- Edson Barboza vs. Tony Ferguson
Performance of the Night --- Frankie Edgar
Performance of the Night --- Tony Ferguson
Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NASC) will likely disclose later this week.
