Belcher, Johnson, Gouveia, and Grant earn 65K Fight Night Bonuses

The Ultimate Fighting Championship have issued their fight night bonuses for UFC:107 Penn vs. Sanchez. On this night it would be a quartet of undercard fighters who would walk away 65 thousand dollars richer for their efforts.

Submission of the Night went to TUF  runner up  DaMarques Johnson for  his  Triangle Choke submission of Edgar Garcia.  Johnson who was caught in a choke early on came back via up kick and was able to secure the bonus securing Triangle and the win.

Like  Johnson, T.J. Grant survived early trouble before  knocking out  Kevin Burns with a combination of a right hook and devastating hammerfists.   The stoppage came at  4:57 of the first frame and was impressive enough to earn  Knockout of the Night honors.

Alan Belcher strengthened his case for main card status tonight with his second  Fight of the Night performance.  Belcher who defeated Wilson Gouveia  is a back and forth stand up battle made it very clear in the days leading up to this fight that he felt slighted being relegated to the undercard.
