White awards two knockouts of the night; Wand earns double bonus

by Chris Palmquist |

Although UFC President Dana White was unable to attend tonight's UFC on Fuel TV 8 in Japan, he was there in spirit and more importantly on Twitter. Normally White hands announced the bonus awards at the UFC post-fight press conference but tonight he went right to Twitter with the announcement.

White handed out two knock out of the night bonuses, one to Wanderlei Silva for his brutal finish of Brian Stann, and another to Mark Hunt who finished Stefan Struve in the third round. Wanderlei Silva and Brian Stann also received the fight of the night bonus. There was no submission of hte night bonus, as there were no submissions finishes on the entire card.

Each athtlete was awarded a $50,000 bonus for their performance awards, with Wanderlei Silva walking away with a cool $100,000 for his double bonus.
