Kampmann and Sanchez each earn 160.000$ bonus!

Quote:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. – Diego Sanchez, Martin Kampmann, Shane Roller and Brian Bowles each earned "Fight Night" bonuses for their performances at Thursday's "UFC on Versus 3: Sanchez vs. Kampmann" event.

Sanchez and Kampmann each earned whopping $160,000 bonuses for "Fight of the Night" honors.

Roller, who earned the night's "Knockout of the Night" award, and Bowles, who got the "Submission of the Night" bonus, each took home $40,000.

UFC president Dana White informed MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) of the winners and amounts prior to the evening's post-event press conference at the KFC Yum! Center in Louisville, Ky. Soon after the show, he informed Yahoo! Sports' Kevin Iole that he ultimately threw in an extra $100,000 for both Sanchez and Kampmann because he was so impressed by the fight.

Featuring a main event between perennial contenders Sanchez and Kampmann, the main card of UFC on Versus 3 aired live on Versus, and two preliminary-card bouts streamed on Facebook.

Sanchez and Kampmann went toe-to-toe for 15 straight minutes in an instant classic. Kampmann flashed impressive takedown defense throughout and kept Sanchez at bay while landing pinpoint strikes on the feet. But Sanchez dug deep and continued to move forward while winging powerful punches despite being battered and bloodied from Kampmann's offense. In the end, the tightly contested affair ended in a controversial unanimous decision for Sanchez, but both fighters cashed in on a "Fight of the Night" bonus.

White said he issued the initial $20,000 in extra funds to the main-event competitors due to the thrilling nature of the bout.

In his UFC debut, Roller outlasted a game Thiago Tavares and delivered the first knockout of his career. The second-round right hand left Tavares out cold on the first strike, and Roller claimed the clear "Knockout of the Night in a finish destined for future UFC highlight reels.

Meanwhile, former WEC champ Bowles claimed the evening's "Submission of the Night" award with an arm-in guillotine submission win over Damacio Page. In a rematch of the pair's 2008 contest, Bowles rocked Page on the feet before moving in to finish with the submission. The gritty Page refused to tap but was rendered unconscious from the perfectly executed maneuver. In a strange twist, the end came at the 3:30 mark of the opening round, the exact same time as the pair's first fight, which also ended by a guillotine choke.

Sweet gesture from Dana, just proves that being entertaining can make you a living as well in the UFC

Also, this is just what was announced. It would not surprise me if both alos received some sort of other bonus as well, car, etc. I know Dana has done this on other occasions on top of monetary bonuses. It was one hell of a good fight, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time.

Say what you want about Dana, no other President of an MMA company does this kind of things. Awesome by Dana, awesome.

I personally love Dana and think he is a stand up person and sometimes get critized for trying to help the sport he loves grow while at the same time building his own business.

With that said this is not just about giving them what they deserve. This is about inspiring these type of performances from the rest of the roster. All of a sudden an undercard fighter can be earning as much as a higher profile fight. This is a great incentive to put on the best performace everytime you step in the octagon. Dana has also been known to shell out bonuses for more than fight. I think this is good for the sport. As appose to a the pride days where you could lose your purse, this is more positive reinforcement.

Totally agree.

I think this is a nice little incentive for Kampmann to keep his head up after being robbed.

At the same time it also puts a positive twist on this since it really encourages guys to lay it all on the line when they fight.

These guys both deserve this bonus. Especially when fighters give performances like the running man incident, it just makes these guys look great.

I wanna see the Palhares submission, I swear although Bowles's submission was good, from the report its seems to be a flying knee bar from the clinch which if its like the report sounds has to beat any guillotine choke no matter how perfectly executed.

I just get feel Palhares was screwed 3 times over in this event, first for been on the fcuking unaired prelims in the first place, second for not even having his submission victory shown on the night and now more insult could be added by the fact there is a good chance he was robbed of submission of the night.
