For Rick “The Horror” Story, this past Saturday night turned out to be more like a fairy tale come true than anything penned by Stephen King thanks to an additional six-figure payout he received beyond his regular contracted salary.
Story was awarded both “Submission of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” in lieu of his performance against Brian Foster at UFC 103. Each honor netted him $65,000. Vitor Belfort also pocketed an extra sixty-five thousand dollars for “Knockout of the Night” based on his first-round TKO victory over former UFC Champion Rich Franklin.
The summarized list of UFC 103 bonuses is as follows:
Fight of the Night – Rick Story vs. Brian Foster
Submission of the Night – Rick Story (Arm-Triangle Choke)
Knockout of the Night – Vitor Belfort
