The UFC has handed down their latest set of Twitter bonuses with several Brazilians once again taking home prizes, but a few new faces have picked up some cash as well.

The bonuses were announced on Tuesday by the UFC via Twitter, ironically enough.

The categories include number of followers in four separate categories, biggest percentage of growth in followers, and finally the most creative Twitter award.

For most followers the awards went to Anderson Silva, Junior Dos Santos, Brendan Schaub and Cung Le.

For biggest growth in followers the awards went to Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira, Roy Nelson, Jake Ellenberger and Cung Le.

For most creative tweets during this quarter the awards were handed to Tim Kennedy for his ‘Stache Bash’, Joseph Benavidez for his ‘JOBE awards’, Duane ‘Bang’ Ludwig for his petitions, and finally to Pat Barry because well he’s Pat Barry.

Most specifically Barry won because of his legendary car ride karaoke video riding shotgun with Mirko Cro Cop while singing some Mamas and the Papas.

All of the award winners receive a $5,000 bonus from the UFC.
