UFC 169 results: Abel Trujillo takes home two bonuses

Lightweight Abel Trujillo took home two performance bonus checks with his thundering knockout win over Jamie Varner at UFC 169.

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

When 10 out of 12 fights go to decision, bonuses are generally pretty easy to figure out. This was the case at UFC 169, where a lot of the fights that heard the final horn weren't exactly barnburners.

But one fight stood out at least - Abel Trujillo vs. Jamie Varner. The two men threw down with reckless abandon in the opening fight of the main card, and they were rewarded handsomely by the organization.

The fighters each earned $75,000 for fight of the night, while Trujillo earned another $50,000 for his incredible come-from-behind knockout win in the second round. There were no submission finishes on the card, so obviously there was no bonus awarded for submission of the night. The extra money was included in the fight of the night bonus, which makes sense.

The only other fight that saw a finish was the main event bout between Renan Barao and Urijah Faber, and that was a tad controversial.
