UFC 89 Bonuses

Luiz Cane, Jim Miller, Chris Lytle, and Paul Taylor each earned a $40,000 “Fight Night” bonus for their efforts at UFC 89 on Saturday at the NIA Arena in Birmingham, England.

Luiz Cane scored his second-straight UFC victory with a second round TKO due to strikes of feared light heavy knockout artist Rameau Thierry Sokoudjou to earn the “Knockout of the Night” bonus.

Making his UFC debut, lightweight Jim Miller submitted David Baron with a textbook rear naked choke midway through the third round of their preliminary fight to win the “Submission of the Night” award. This bout is now available for viewing on UFC.com.

Welterweights Chris Lytle and Paul Taylor went toe-to-toe in a three-round standup brawl to earn “Fight of the Night” honors.

While still a large sum, especially for preliminary card fighters, the $40,000 bonuses are down from the $60,000 “Fight Night” bonuses following UFC 88 in September, which aired on pay-per-view, and $50,000 bonuses for UFC 85 in June, which also took place in the UK and aired on Spike TV.

At least the FOTN bonus was well deserved.
