Despite Dana White’s recent hints at removing fight bonuses, it seems they are still here, and they look to stay. Another night of high-paced action in the books as UFC on Fox 8 finishes with champion Demetrious Johnson earning a highlight finish in the final round against trash talking John Moraga. For his efforts, the champ takes home a cool $50,000 in bonus money, on top of his show and win pay.
Also earning an extra 50k in bonus money is knockout artist Melvin Guillard, with his k.o. of Mac Danzig on the FX prelims. Following the win, an emotional Guillard revealed that he had to miss his grandmother’s funeral in order to attend the event.
It should be no surprise that Ed Herman and Trevor Smith had taken home the Fight Of The Night bonus with their three round war. In the end it was Herman that would eek out the W in the cards.
Knockout of the Night: Melvin Guillard
