UFC Fight Night 41 Fighter Bonuses: Officials Opt for Four Performance of the Night Awards

CB Dollaway 470x260The UFC returned to Germany on Saturday for UFC Fight Night 41: Munoz vs. Mousasi at the O2 World in Berlin.

As is the norm, UFC officials handed out four $50,000 bonuses following the fights, but breaking with recent tradition, they awarded four Performance of the Night awards instead of the usual Fight of the Night award and two Performance of the Night honors.

Not surprisingly, UFC Berlin main eventer Gegard Mousasi led the way. He dominated Mark Munoz for the first few minutes of their fight before ending it inside of the opening round with a rear naked choke.

And not to be outdone by the headlining bout, co-main event winner CB Dollaway also secured a Performance of the Night bonus with his three-round unanimous decision victory over Francis Carmont.

Rounding out the awards were two Swedish victors. Niklas Backstrom, who was a late replacement for Thiago Tavares, submitted Tom Niinimaki, and Magnus Cedenblad forced Krzysztof Jotko to tap out.
