UFC 162 Bonuses: Chris Weidman, Three Others Pick Up $50,000

Five fighters earned an additional $50,000 for their efforts at UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman Saturday night, including new UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman.

Weidman, who floored Anderson Silva in the main event, scored the “Knockout of the Night” for his second round victory.

Since there was no submission on the card, the UFC gave out two “Fight of the Night” awards.

Frankie Edgar earned one for his co-main event win over Charles Oliveira, as did Oliveira, while Cub Swanson and Dennis Siver earned the other. Swanson was the winner in that one.

The attendance was recorded at 12,399 with a live gate of $4.862 million.
