UFC Fight Night 47 bonuses: Tim Boetsch, Thiago Tavares bank $50K for knockout, submission


Mo money, mo problems...

UFC Fight Night 47: "Bader vs. St. Preux" from the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor, Maine has officially wrapped, which means it's time for those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights to get a little extra grease for their efforts.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 20 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.

This time around, Tim Boetsch and Thiago Tavares were awarded "Performance" bonuses for their knockout and submission wins over Brad Tavares and Robbie Peralta, respectively. Meanwhile, the thrilling Alan Jouban vs. Seth Baczynski one-round battle took home "Fight of the Night" honors.

Here are the special UFC Fight Night 47 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Tim Boetsch

Performance of the Night -- Thiago Tavares

Fight of the Night -- Alan Jouban vs. Seth Baczynski

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as that information becomes available.
