Three fighters would earn UFC 168 fight night bonuses tonight in Las Vegas as UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, Miesha Tate, and Travis Browne all picked up extra cash for their efforts tonight. While Tate and Browne would earn $75,000 each, Rousey would double up by winning both “Fight of the Night” and “Submission of the Night.” UFC president Dana White announced the bonuses at the UFC 168 Post-Fight Press Conference.
Rousey Earns “FOTN” and “SOTN”
UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey will certainly have some extra cash after picking up “Fight of the Night” and “Submission of the Night” over rival Miesha Tate. Rousey had the longest fight of her career tonight at UFC 168, but the result would be a familiar one as she picked up her eighth straight armbar finish. The bonuses are both women’s second in the UFC.
Browne picks up “KOTN” over Barnett
Travis Browne’s ascent up the heavyweight ladder made him $75K richer tonight at UFC 168 as his picked up “Knockout of the Night” over Josh Barnett. The result of the fight certainly inspired a bit of deja vu as Browne picked up a knockout with elbows to the head of Barnett off a takedown. The bonus is Browne’s third straight “KOTN” and his fifth bonus in the UFC.
