JDS, Hunt, Grant, Teixeira take $50,000 OTN performance bonuses


UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2
May 25, 2013
MGM Grand Garden Arena
Las Vegas, Nevada

All 'of the Night' performance bonuses are set for $50,000 going forward, and there were some HOLY F@#%ING $#!* moments Saturday night that that honored.

Knockout of the Night: T.J. Grant

Submission of the Night: Glover Teixeira

Fight of the Night: Junior Dos Santos vs. Mark Hunt

UFC president Dana White had originally determined to award Junior Dos Santos the "Knockout of the Night" honors for the wheel kick destruction above. However, a higher power in the form of Mike Tyson determined that T.J. Grant's KO of Gray Maynard was more worthy still.

JDS did however take the $50,000 Fight of the Night honors.

Submission of the Night went to Glover Teixeira, who guillotined James Te Huna at just 2:38 of the first round.

White revealed the role Tyson played during the UFC 160 media scrum:

Bermudes and Halloway should get some kind of recognition. That fight was sick. Plus Halloway should get his win bonus and file a police report because he got robbed.

If we're picking bonuses, I'd rather go home with JDS's undisclosed bonus then TJ Grant's KO of the Night bonus.

JDS KOOTN for sure, they could have handed out two KO bonuses instead.

JDS did get screwed on the bonus, but I think it is fair to have a limit of one bonus per person per night.
