Marcus Davis Earns $80000 In Win Bonuses

The following is from MMAJunkie.com

Surviving an awkward kick to the neck paid off for Marcus Davis in two ways. Not only did the UFC welterweight rebound for a first-round victory, but he also earned a $40,000 bonus for “Fight of the Night” and an additional $40,000 for “Submission of the Night” at Saturday’s UFC 75 event in London, England.

Davis today spoke to MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) about the unexpected windfall.

Early in their main-card bout, opponent Paul Taylor connected on a kick that hit “The Irish Hand Grenade” flush on the neck.

“My legs instantly went to sleep, and I got these real tingly feelings as I hit the mat,” Davis said. “But I’m so glad he kicked me in the neck. If he hadn’t, and I just went out there and mauled him and submitted him, it wouldn’t have really accomplished anything. I’m lucky he was a tough guy and it was a back-and-forth battle because it earned us the extra money.”

Although Davis rebounded to defeat his English opponent with an armbar submission, Taylor also earned a $40,000 “Fight of the Night” bonus. (Houston Alexander picked up a $40,000 “Knockout of the Night” bonus for his 61-second TKO of Alessio Sakara.)
