UFC Introduces New System For Bonuses

The UFC plants to implement their new post-fight bonus system this weekend starting with UFC Fight Night 36. The new system will allow the UFC to single out individual fighters who put on a solid performance without being limited to knockout of the night and submission of the night categories, however they still will award a fight of the night bonus.

The new bonus will be called “Performance of the night” and the UFC will still dish out a cool $50,000 in each category, which they reserve the right to bump up in special cases as seen at UFC 169 where 10 of 12 fights on the card went to a decision, and the other 2 ended by KO/TKO. As a result the UFC gave Jamie Varner $75,000 for fight of the night, and Abel Trujillo banked $75,000 for fight of the night as well as an additional $50,000 for KO of the night.

UFC Fight Night 36: Machida vs. Mousasi is live from Brazil this Saturday on Fox Sports 1, prelims will be airing on UFC Fight Pass.
