Fight Night Bonuses Awarded Following UFC 85: Bedlam 6/7


The following is from

Thiago Alves, Kevin Burns, Matt Wiman and Thiago Tavares each earned $50,000 “fight night” bonuses for their performances at UFC 85. ( confirmed the list of winners and bonus amounts with our content partners at Yahoo! Sports.

UFC 85 took place Saturday at the 02 Arena in London, England, and aired live on pay per view. The bonus amounts for the event dipped $25,000; winners previously received $75,000 bonuses last month at UFC 84.

Thiago Alves, who failed to make weight for his main-event fight with Matt Hughes (due to a sprained ankle), dominated the former longtime champ for a second-round TKO. Alves used a flying knee and a flurry of punches to force the stoppage 62 seconds into the second round. It was the American Top Team fighter's sixth consecutive victory (and fifth straight win via knockout).

Burns, a UFC newcomer who was a late replacement for Ryo Chonan, earned the Submission of the Night award. He forced Roan Carneiro to tap out from a triangle choke at 2:53 of the second round. The bout took place on the night's preliminary card, but the ending of the fight was featured in the night's pay-per-view broadcast.

Wiman and Tavares picked up Fight of the Night honors for their back-and-forth battle on the night's preliminary card. Wiman survived a jarring punch to the jaw to score his own knockout moments later. The stoppage came at 1:57 of the second round. That bout also appeared via tape delay on the night's pay-per-view broadcast.
