UFC Norfolk is in the books. A strange night of fights with some great action, some funk, and a few surprises. For many fans, one of those surprises was Andrei Arlovski. The 38-year-old ‘Pitbull’ took a decision win over rising Brazilian prospect Junior Albini on the main card of the November 11th Fight Night. And in the process he netted himself a cool $250,000.
That makes Arlovski by far the biggest earner of the night, with Matt Brown a distant second at $150,000. Although, Brown did net an additional $50,000 with a performance of the night bonus for his highlight reel KO of Diego Sanchez. All told, the UFC officially handed out $2,044,600 in purse and bonus money on the night.
Here’s the official numbers* (via MMA Fighting):
Matt Brown - $150,000 ($75,000/$75,000) + $50,000 PotN bonus
Diego Sanchez - $95,000 to show
