UFC 275 Post Fight Bonuses: Every Finish Awarded $50,000

UFC 275

The UFC is traditionally known for handing out a bonus to each of the two fighters who compete in the ‘Fight of The Night’ and furthermore another two ‘Performance of The Night’, which in total is four. 

However, UFC 275 has been regarded as just too good, that four 50k bonuses were just not enough for Uncle Dana, after a potential front-runner for the best ‘Fight card of the year’.

The promotion announced that every fighter that produced a finish on the night received a $50,000 bonus, including the main event between Light-Heavyweights Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira, who were awarded the ‘Fight of The Night bonus’.

The ‘Performance of The Night’ bonus was given out to: Silvana Gomez Juarez, Hayisaer Macheshate, Jake Della Maddalena, Jake Mathews, and Zhang Weili. Which is three more than the usual routine.
