Sean Sherk, Evan Dunham, Matt Mitrione, Joey Beltran and C.B. Dollaway each earned $70,000 fight-night bonuses for their performances at Saturday's UFC 119 event.

Dollaway picked up the "Submission of the Night" bonus, and two "Fight of the Night" awards were issued to the competitors involved in the Sherk-Dunham and Mitrione-Beltran contests.

Despite securing the lone knockout of the evening, former UFC heavyweight champion Frank Mir was not awarded a "Knockout of the Night" bonus.

MMAjunkie.com learned of the award winners and bonus amounts while at the post-UFC 119 press conference.

What the fuck kind of bullshit is that? Mir had the K.O., he deserves the 70 grand regardless of how boring the fight was up until then.

its a bonus, hes not entitled to it. he got paid his purse.

How bout they take away his fight money since he didnt fight, and give him the KO bonus instead? thats fair.

I'm shocked that FOTN wasn't given to Serra/Lytle.

This proves that cro-cop wasn't KO'd but merely fell asleep!

Well if Mir is still under the same contract he was at UFC 100 (which I think he still is with a couple more fights left), then he'd gladly take that since he only gets paid $45,000.

 Ummmmmmm, really? They gave it to Mitrione/Beltran, who had little to no technique and less action than Lytle/Serra. Hell, they even announced that Lytle/Serra was the BSN fight of the night on the ppv. You would think that would translate over to the awards. Instead they gave it to rock em sock em robots and Sherk vs. Dunham which in my opinion was a one sided fight for Dunham but the judges thought differently.

Big Sexy put on way more of a show as well as some of the other losing/winning fighters, they should get that money. not the guy whos main event will be spoken of as one of the worst of all time.

don't really care who it went to. I'm tired of watching Chris Lytle fight like this all the time so he can try to get that bonus. its gotten old.

It wasn't the BSN fight of the night award, it was the BSN turning point of the night award, whatever that means.

So you either didn't watch the fight or understand what you were watching?

I think Frank should have received the bonus. The bonus is paid for the knockout, not the fight. My guess is that he will get the bonus. Dana was probably just pissed off (and rightfully so) for a lackluster main event. At least Frank tried to push the pace. Crocop did nothing the entire fight. He just seems to be a very different fighter than he was in Pride.

I dont get it though, a bonus is not part of the contract, its enticement through positive reinforcement. I dont think he should HAVE to get it if he performed that badly. should go to paying back people who want refunds instead, since we pay Danas way through life and are thus more important.

Think of it as... Frank got docked about as much $ as he woulda if yellow cards were in play.

I don't see why Frank should be getting docked anything, Crocop was the stale dancing partner. What did he do at all in this fight other than fall asleep at the end?

No ones saying Crop Cop deserves shit, bud.

Frank held him up against the cage when he could have actually done something for large portions of the fight, so it was largely his fault. He would only engage with his stupid ONE combo he throws and would then clinch up and rush to the cage. Every time. He is to blame just as much if not more than Cro Cop.
