UFC Doles Out 25k Bonuses for “Silva vs. Irvin”


(Looks like Jesse Taylor picked the wrong week to quit drinking. Photo courtesy of UFC.com.)

The UFC’s always fluctuating end-of-night bonuses totaled $25,000 apiece for Saturday’s “Silva vs. Irvin” event. The four lucky men who left the Palms one-fortieth of a million dollars richer are…

Knockout of the Night: Rory Markham for his skull-crushing head-kick KO of Brodie Farber.
Submission of the Night: CB Dollaway for his “Peruvian Necktie” choke of fellow TUF 7 castmember Jesse Taylor.
Fight of the Night: Frankie Edgar and Hermes Franca for their three-round tussle that Edgar took unanimously thanks to his takedowns and GnP.

The must-see Markham/Farber knockout is below, and the Dollaway/Taylor scrap is after the jump — and we threw in Cain Velasquez‘s beatdown of Jake O’Brien for good measure. (If you find a working link for Edgar/Franca, please post it in the comments section.) Serious props to MMA TKO.

It's called copyright u douche-nipples. I would avoid fines and other shit at the risk of disappointing a couple missing links.

@ Tsname:

Great, so we're in agreement then.

$25,000 is not one quarter of a million dollars, it's actually 2.5% of a million dollars. It is, however, one quarter of $100,000. Little bit of math-douchery for you.

For some reason Cain wasn't throwing any elbows from that position. Maybe he was just being nice and didn't want to cut up O'Brien's face. I think a handful of elbows would have stopped the bout as opposed to the 30+ punches he threw. I think it was perfect timing for the stoppage. It ended right when I got that gross feeling of seeing someone getting inihilated.

Cain looked REALLY good, awesome position control... His torso is huge. Not saying "look out Fedor" or anything but he's got a good chance at the UFC's heavyweight belt for sure.

This guy + Lesnar + Tuf 8 is gonna make the UFC's heavyweight division interesting again. If only they would sign Fedor.

Anybody else think the Ref should've stopped O'Brien's suffering a bit sooner?
