    Fighters in the UFC are compensated by the league via their contracted amount to show and win, plus Reebok money, and in addition sometimes get “locker room” bonuses of varying amounts that come in the mail. For the most elite fighters, there is a cut of the PPV that can run into millions. Further, four $50,000 performance bonuses are given at each event.

    The locker room bonuses are informal, and not public. The cut of the PPV, if any, is likewise private, although details have been made public via court cases more than once. Most athletic commissions make public the show and win money, usually early in the following week, delaying reporting.


    However, the four $50,000 performance bonuses are publicly announced at the post-fight press conference.

    $50,000 Fight of the Night
    Michael Bisping
     defeated Dan Henderson by Unanimous Decision (48-47, 48-47, 49-46)

    $50,000 Performance of the Night
    Jimi Manuwa
     defeated Ovince Saint Preux by Knockout (Punch, Round 2, 2:38)

    $50,000 Performance of the Night
    Iuri Alcantara
     defeated Brad Pickett by Submission (Triangle Choke, Round 1, 1:59)


    Performance bonuses often do not go to the most elite fighters, but at UFC 204, the Fight of the Night went to the champion and to the future Hall of Famer, and two performance bonuses went to very experienced fighters.
