Cage Warriors is awarding $2000 'bounty' bonuses for fighters who can execute any of 10 specific kinds of finishes they listed. Is having a bonus system for specific finishes a good idea? Follow this live roundtable as the BE staff give their answers in real time

Cage Warriors have announced a new 'bounty' bonus structure where they award fighters who can perform any of the 10 listed finishes on their cards. Starting with their next event, the European promotion will give $2000 to any of their fighters, regardless of placement on the card as long as they can finish their opponent with any of these methods:

Head kick knockout, twister, knee bar, heel hook, gogoplata, flying knee knockout, Superman punch knockout, knockout in less than 60 seconds, spinning knockout, and slam knockout.

This is a stark contrast from the bonus systems in the UFC and other prominent promotions, where they simply award the fighters who produce the best action or finishes on the card.

The main motivation for those bonuses is to obviously promote more exciting fights for a chance at extra money, but with Cage Warriors, we're likely to see fighters try and attempt some very specific moves to guarantee that they get that cash. It will probably affect a lot of their fights moving forward, but is having a bonus system for specific finishes really a good idea?
