UFC On Versus 3: Diego Sanchez And Martin Kampmann Earn Fight Of The Night Bonus

via admin.mmaweekly.com

UFC President Dana White awarded fight of the night honors to Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann as well as $60,000 each for their main event fight at UFC on Versus 3. Brian Bowles won submission of the night for his guillotine choke of Damacio Page. Shane Roller won knockout of the night for stopping Thiago Tavares.

UFC on Versus 3 didn't end as some expect, but the UFC did an excellent job in properly doling out post-fight awards.

It was easily the best fight on the main card and the most important fight on the entire card: Diego Sanchez vs. Martin Kampmann. The bout clearly ended in controversy, but both fighters will go home a little richer. According to MMA Junkie, both Sanchez and Kampmann earned an extra $160,000 for their welterweight fight as well as Fight of the Night honors.

UFC bantamweight Brian Bowles won Submission of the Night for guillotine choke over Damacio Page and lightweight Shane Roller won Knockout of the Night for his stunning second-round stoppage of Thiago Tavares. Both men take home an additional $40,000 for their performance.

According to the MMA Junkie report, UFC President Dana White gave both Sanchez and Kampmann an addition $120,000 each "due to the thrilling nature of the bout.". That will not eliminate the disappointment Kampmann likely feels, but perhaps it can assuage it.
