Sixty-thousand dollar bonuses handed out at UFC 92

Publish date:

On a night that saw two new champions crowned at UFC 92 in Las Vegas, the promotion handed down the usual fight awards with a $60,000 bonus as the reward.

The "UFC 92 Fight of the Night" went to new 205-pound champion Rashad Evans and now former titleholder Forrest Griffin for their war on Saturday night. After an early advantage for Griffin in the first two rounds, it was Evans who earned the win with a TKO stoppage on the ground in the third.

The "UFC 92 Knockout of the Night" went to former UFC light heavyweight champion Quinton "Rampage" Jackson, who exacted a measure of revenge against old foe Wanderlei Silva when he landed a thunderous shot that put the Brazilian down and out cold on the canvas.

None of the fights on the 10-bout card ended in submission, and thus the UFC handed out no "UFC 92 Submission of the Night" bonus.

UFC 92 drew 14,103 fans into the MGM Grand Garden Arena to witness the promotion's final event of the year.
