The Europe-based Cage Warriors Fighting Championship is offering an interesting take on the traditional post-fight bonus system.

CWFC CEO Graham Boylan told MMAJunkie.com on Friday that the promotion is instituting a $2,000 bounty bonus for any fighter on a card who finishes a bout via one of the following 10 methods:

- Head kick knockout
- Twister
- Knee bar
- Heel hook
- Gogoplata
- Flying knee knockout
- Superman punch knockout
- Knockout in less than 60 seconds
- Spinning knockout
- Slam knockout

The bonuses will be effective for all Cage Warriors events going forward, including Saturday’s CWFC 70 card, which takes place at the Helix in Dublin and is headlined by a clash between Joseph Duffy and Damien Lapilus.

Cage Warriors already issued bonuses for “Fight of the Night,” “Knockout of the Night” and “Submission of the Night,” but the new incentives figure to make things even more interesting at upcoming events.
