by Chris Palmquist |

At the post-fight press conference, UFC President Dana White announced the 'of the night bonus' performances and lightweight Abel Trujilo was the big winner:

Fight of the Night: Jamie Varner vs. Abel Trujilo

Knockout of the Night: Abel Trujilo

As there was no submission in any of the fights, no submission of the night was awarded. Instead the UFC increased the amount for the fighters involved in the fight of the night.

The 'fight of the night' athletes earned $75,000 and knockout of the night was awarded $50,000. Abel Trujillo earned a total of $125,000 for his performance.

Maybe he can donate some of that to an organization to support battered women.

One of those rare OH SHIT fights from beginning to end, well deserved. Varner looked great too, until eating that monster punch.

That's awesome on the UFCs part to do that. I really think they get a lot of undue flak for being cheap when they do stuff like this and we really don't know what the locker room pay endetails.Especially considering UFC fighters say they are paid very well. Brendon Schaub is always talking about how well he is paid on his podcast and when his co-host alludes to there being not a lot of money in MMA Schuab always shuts him down and says he is paid well. This is Brendon Schaub saying this. Someone who came into the UFC through TUF.
