UFC on Fuel TV 7 PosterThe Ultimate Fighting Championship handed out $50,000 bonuses for in-Octagon performances following UFC on Fuel TV 7 in London on Saturday.  Renan Barao, Tom Watson and Stanislov Nedkov banked the bonus money.

The Fight of the Night bonus money went to Tom Watson and Stanislov Nedkov.  The two went to war on the Facebook aired preliminary card.  Watson was in trouble early, but withstood Nedkov’s barrage.  He utilized the clinch to inflict damage.  Watson landed a knee to the body that knocked Nedkov down in the second round and finished with punches.

Watson also banked the Knockout of the Night bonus award for the finish of Nedkov, raising his bonus money to $100,000.

Submission of the Night honors went to interim bantamweight champion Renan Barao for his fourth round submission of Michael McDonald in the main event.  McDonald had Barao in some trouble in the first round, but Barao gained momentum as the fight wore on.  He was able to get the fight to the ground and finish it with an arm-triangle choke.

The total money awarded in bonuses following UFC on Fuel TV 7 totaled $200,000.
