The customary awarding of post-fight bonuses in the UFC took a turn for the strange after UFC 160. The co-main event bout between Junior dos Santos and Mark Hunt was an awesome striking battle that featured an insane spinning kick knockout from JDS. On any other night, that would have easily earned him a $50,000 dollar check.
But a certain former heavyweight champion from boxing thought differently.
At the behest of Mike Tyson, the UFC decided to award the knockout of the night bonus to lightweight T.J. Grant instead, who finished Gray Maynard in the first round of their contender's bout. Dana White explained the deal at the post-fight presser, and Dos Santos didn't seem too bothered by the deal. Probably because he earned 50k for the fight of the night anyway.
The submission of the night bonus was pretty easy to figure out, since there was only one submission on the card. That bonus went to Glover Teixeira, who finished James Te Huna with a guillotine in the first round of their light heavyweight bout.
The attendance was 11,089 and the gate was 2.942 million according to the UFC president.
