Junior dos Santos (white trunks) and Mark Hunt (red) earned a 'Fight of the Night' bonus.
UFC 160 had no shortage of action during its pay-per-view card on Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The main card featured an exciting unanimous decision, a slick and well-timed submission, and three TKO finishes.
Four fighters earned a $50K post-fight bonus for their efforts during the card. Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt were awarded the ‘Fight of the Night’ bonus for their exciting stand-up affair that featured a highlight-reel KO by dos Santos late in the third round.
Lightweight TJ Grant was not only awarded a $50K ‘Knockout of the Night’ bonus for brutal KO of Gray Maynard, but he also earned a lightweight title shot against champion Benson Henderson.
Glover Teixeira won the final bonus by earning a ‘Submission of the Night’ victory over his opponent James Te Huna. Teixeira finished Te Huna mid-way through the first round with an arm-in guillotine, and has moved another step closer to a potential showdown with light heavyweight kingpin Jon Jones.
