A sold-out crowd of 13,081 spectators jammed inside the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night to witness UFC 114 headlined by the grudge match between former UFC light heavyweight titleholders “Sugar” Rashad Evans and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson. Gate ticket sales garnered $3.895 million.
The UFC handed out $65,000 bonus checks for UFC 114 in-Octagon performances to Ryan Jensen, Mike Russow, Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, and Jason Brilz.
Knockout of the Night honors went to Mike Russow, who was trailing the entire fight against hot prospect Todd Duffee when he landed a right hand in the final round, knocking his opponent out.
The Submission of the Night bonus money went to Ryan Jensen for his guillotine choke win over Jesse Forbes in UFC 114 preliminary action.
Antonio Rogerio Nogueira and Jason Brilz took home the Fight of the Night award for their back and forth three-round war where Brilz was impressive. Loud boos from the fans after the decision was announced told the tale of how close of a fight it was.
$260,000 in bonus money was awarded at UFC 114.
