Default UFC 106 Posts Fight Bonuses

Saturday, November 21, 2009 - by Damon Martin - MMAWeekly.com

A big win for Josh Koscheck over Anthony Johnson on Saturday night led to a big bonus for the American Kickboxing Academy welterweight as he walked away with 2 of the awards from the UFC during the night's usual bonuses handed down.

For their part of "Fight of the Night", Koscheck and Anthony Johnson earned $70,000 each, while the former "Ultimate Fighter" competitor also picked up an additional $70,000 for "Submission of the Night" for his 2nd round rear naked choke victory.

The double bonus is a rare occasion in the UFC, but Koscheck earned his way to a win, a possible title shot down the road, and $140,000 for his short notice performance on Saturday night.

The other bonus at UFC 106 landed in the hands of newcomer, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, who pounced on fellow Brazilian Luis Cane, in the first round of their light heavyweight match-up with a slew of strikes that ended the fight early. Nogueira, a mainstay in Pride for many years, made the most of his UFC debut and earned the $70,000 bonus for "Knockout of the Night."
