In addition to being paid a fixed amount to show and another, usually equal amount to win, each UFC event also awards four $50,000 Performance Bonuses. Usually, there is a Fight of the Night in which both fighters are given a performance bonus, and a performance bonus to the winner in two fights. "Performance Bonus" means the fight made you say "HOLY F@$%ING $#!@."

At this event rather than the traditional awarding of a Fight of the Night and two Performance of the Nights, four performance bonuses were given out.

One of the primary differences between the UFC model and the boxing model is the depth of the card. Sometimes the greatest fight isn't the main event, or close to it. At The TUF 28 Finale the main and the co-main received awards, but so did a fight from a late prelims, and a fight from the early prelims.

$50,000 Performance of the Night:
Kamaru Usman defeated Rafael Dos Anjos by Unanimous Decision (50-43, 49-45, 48-47)

$50,000 Performance of the Night
Joseph Benavidez defeated Alex Perez by TKO (Strikes, Round 1, 4:19)

$50,000 Performance of the Night:
Juan Espino defeated Justin Frazier by Submission (Armlock, Round 1, 3:36)

$50,000 Performance of the Night:
Roosevelt Roberts defeated Darrell Horcher by Submission (Guillotine, Round 1, 4:50)

In addition, to the bonuses and purses, there is:
•Reebok pay, based on tenure, for wearing the distinctive apparel during fight week and in the Octagon;
•Sometimes fighters get discretionary “locker room” bonuses of varying amounts; despite their name, locker room bonuses actually come in the mail now;
•In some cases there is an LOA [Letter of Agreement] on the contract for additional income; and,
•The most elite fighters get points on the pay per view.

The next league event isUFC Fight Night: dos Santos vs. Tuivasa, also known as UFC Fight Night 142, also known as UFC Adelaide be held on December 1, 2018 at Adelaide Entertainment Center in Adelaide, Australia.
