    Junior dos Santos banked a six-figure payday and continued his heavyweight climb with a first-round knockout of Gabriel Gonzaga at UFC on Versus 1 at the 1st Bank Center in Broomfield, Colo.

    Wonder why Kongo got $60K for a submission bonus.

    Overall, nice increases in pay for the lower tiered fighters. The lowest still pulled $6 grand.

    So no more FOTN, KOOTN, SOTN? Everyone gets a bonus as long as they finish their guy?

    didn't Buentello tap? I know it was due to strikes, but do they count that as a "submission"?

    what are you talking about?

    there were 3 KOTN bonuses and 1 SOTN bonus. There was no FOTN.

    There are win bonuses and "finish bonuses" included in these numbers.

    They are all still there. There was no FOTN at this event per Dana.

    Oh, I didn't realize they had multiple bonuses like that. I always thought there was 1 KOOTN, 1 SOTN, and 1 FOTN. I mean, the phrase 'KO of the night' kinda implies that it was the best KO of the night, not one of the KO's that night.

    Nice to see they paid Clay $100,000 and didn't even show the fucking fight on air.

    I put Baseball/basketball/football stars in the same category of major corporations CEO's. Sickeningly overpaid.
