But there wasn't a FOTN. Just 3 KOOTN and SOTN. So if you go for the KO instead of the sub, you have a 3x better chance of getting a bonus. Also, I would be interested in the statistics of how many fights that have been FOTN in the past were stand up battles vs. technical grappling.

While I agree that I think they should get more money, but don't these fighters make more for sponsorships? If they make 5k a fight and then another 5k (no idea what the average is) sponship money that is 40-50k a year, AND if they are winning they will end up making more money per fight and in sponsor money.

Awesome, but it starts a slippery slope of encouraging stand & wang over everything else.

Seems as though a TKO (almost verbal submission by Vera?) fell into the KO category enough for a win bonus? or was Zuffa trying to help the kid out because of the matt hamill debacle?

The Bonus structure is awesome in the UFC but not all fighters get them and some fighters still make only 5k a fight which isnt enough when you can only fight 4-5 times a year.
