UFC 122: Marquardt vs. Okami may be a “free” event that airs on tape-delay in the United States and England, but the fighters that scored the post-fight bonuses made out with pay-per-view type bonus checks to the tune of $60,000 each.
Dennis Siver, fighting on his home turf in Oberhausen, Germany, wowed the crowd with his “Submission of the Night” performance, sinking a rear naked choke on Andre Winner to earn his bonus check.
Karlos Vemola scored his “Knockout of the Night” bonus early, defeating former “Kimbo Killer” Seth Petruzelli with a brutal brand of ground and pound for a first-round TKO finish.
Also picking up some extra money on the untelevised portion of the fight card, another German, Pascal Krauss, and his opponent, Mark Scanlon scored “Fight of the Night” honors and $60,000 apiece. Krauss also walked away with a unanimous decision victory.
