UFC 80 News: $35k Fight Bonuses Given

Following the fights at UFC 80, The Ultimate Fighting Championships handed down $35k fight bonuses for “Fight of the Night”, “Knockout of the Night” and “Submission of the Night”. The recipients are:

Fight of the Night: Paul Taylor and Paul Kelly
Knockout of the Night: Wilson Gouveia
Submission of the Night: BJ Penn

It seems like the UFC is keeping a close eye on there wallet at UFC 80, only giving $35k bonuses.

UFC 78 – $55k
UFC 79 – $50k
UFC 80 – $35k

I guess the fighters are paying the bill for the UFC’s expansion in the Europe or maybe Dana White just looked at Saturdays PPV numbers and just realized this card was a little lacking.

    None of Dana's buddies are on this card so he cut the bonuses for this one.
