UFC 113 Bonuses Announced

If standard event bonuses are any indication of a particular fight’s entertainment value, then apparently fans were fortunate enough to see the best of the best on Saturday night after it was announced four main card participants would be taking home an additional $65,000 based on their performances at UFC 113. The distinctions were revealed at the post-event press conference and later reported by Sherdog.

The sixth sub of Alan Belcher’s career netted the Duke Roufus product ”Submission of the Night”, while ”Fight of the Night” went to Jeremy Stephens and Sam Stout for their action-packed, split-decision battle.

Meanwhile, Mauricio “Shogun” Rua was given yet another reason to smile after winning the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship from the formerly unbeaten Lyoto Machida, as his first-round knockout of “The Dragon” also netted him ”Knockout of the Night” and the sixty-five grand coming with it. The award is Rua’s second in the UFC with the first also coming in Montreal after the Brazilian champ flattened Chuck Liddell at UFC 97 in the bout’s opening frame.

    Well deserved bonuses all around.

    FYI, all the prelims from 113 are in the UFC Vault and they are still offering 3 months of free access.

    Lyoto looked too relaxed-Shogun was on fire from the get go

  • Angry Mike says:

    The message from White is very clear, especially after Anderson Silva’s bizarre performance. Fight hard and finish fights dramatically and you’ll be rewarded accordingly. Money talks, and that’s what it’s saying.

    65 grand and a belt…not bad Rua.
    Stout should have gotten the win as well but it was a good fight.

  • Another fat bonus cheque and a belt this time around, Shogun deserves it. Also, Stout’s nickname should be changed. It’s terribly misleading. “Chin of Stone” is more like it. Anybody else wanting to see Belcher fight tougher competition? He’s got skills for sure.
