UFC 96: Jackson Vs. Jardine Fight Night Bonuses


UFC 96 is now in the books and the usual fight night award bonuses have been announced following the card that took place in Columbus, OH and aired live on Pay Per View.

Each fighter for Knockout of the Night, Submission of the Night, and Fight of the Night earned a cool $60,000 on top of their fighter pay. On to the winners.

For Knockout of the Night, Matt Hamill almost took his opponents head clean off with a kick that sent the former collegiate wrestling champion Mark Munoz down to the canvas and into dreamland.

Surprisingly, no submissions occured during the show so no bonus could be awarded.

Main eventers Rampage Jackson and Keith Jardine took home fight of the night honors. The two top light heavyweights fought a hard three round war that seen former champion Jackson come out on top and earn a shot at Rashad Evans in May.
