Why did Dollaway get the bonus? He didn't do anything memorable IMO.

I'm glad those guys got those bonuses but it just feels wrong that there was not a FOTN.FOTN is about more than money. FOTN is about honoring the two fighters that made the night special, magical, exciting etc...There is a loser in 99% of UFC fights. FOTN does not just honor those who the sun has just shined on but also the man who fought and fought and never gave an inch. In short, FOTN honors a warrior who happened not to get their hand raised but who still contributed to something that transcends winning and losing.

He wasnt losing money as in not making any..... just making less money because the fight was overseas and he had to pay for the plane tickets/hotel accomodations for all but one of his coaches.     How the fuck does the UFC still only pay for the fighter and one coach?  Thats insane.. multi billion dollar company and there are guys that lose money to fight.  What was the guys name who talked about it and retired after fighting in Brazil?
