Bonus checks of $60,000 were cut to Rich Franklin, Wanderlei Silva, Mike Swick and Terry Etim following their respective “fight night” performances at UFC 99.
UFC 99 took place at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, Germany on Saturday evening.
Franklin ans Silva got right to business in the main event of the evening and didn’t let up until the sound of the final bell. Both men landed hard shots and both were stumbled at different moments of their electrifying contest that grabbed “Fight of the Night” honors.
Swick’s second round two fisted demolition of Ben Saunders earned him a “Quick” 60 G’s while Etim went home with the hefty bonus for his nasty D’arce choke over Justin Bucholz. The Etim vs. Bucholz bout took place on the undercard and there were no submissions on the main card.
