UFC 160 Fight Night Bonuses; Junior Dos Santos Collects A Pair (UPDATE)

Former UFC heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos picked up an additional $100,000 for his victory over Mark Hunt at UFC 160 Saturday night.

Dos Santos and Hunt were awarded the “Fight of the Night,” and “Cigano” also earned “Knockout of the Night.” The Brazilian landed a spinning wheel kick late in the third round to finish Hunt.

The “Submission of the Night” belonged to Glover Teixeira, who defeated James Te Huna.

UPDATE: Well, no extra $100,000 for dos Santos, as former boxing champion Mike Tyson told UFC president Dana White that T.J. Grant deserved the “Knockout of the Night” and White made the switch. Grant finished Gray Maynard to secure a future UFC lightweight title shot.
