James Krause at WEC 41UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson took place on Saturday night at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. It followed UFC on Fuel TV 10, which set a record for total number of fights finished by submission during one event, by tying the promotion’s record for most decisions in one night, at nine.

That made determining the customary post-fight bonuses a little easier on the UFC brass.

Opening the main card with a promised knockout finish, heavyweight Shawn Jordan took home a $50,000 bonus for his Knockout of the Night victory over Pat Barry. The two big men engaged from the opening bell and Jordan finished the fight 59 seconds later by stunning Barry with a series of uppercuts and finishing with a flurry of left hands once he hit the mat.

The Submission of the Night was another easy one to figure, as James Krause was the only fighter to win via submission.

It was Krause’s UFC debut, stepping in on short notice for Isaac Vallie-Flagge, but you’d never know it. He fought a battle-hardened Sam Stout on the Canadian’s home turf, but overcame Stouts brutal punching power late in the third round to finish the fight with a guillotine choke.

The Fight of the Night, as always, could have went anywhere along the card, but it was again Krause’s night as he and Stout also earned the Fight of the Night honors.

So James Krause, pending his drug test results, earned an additional $100,000 on top of his fight purse.

The UFC doled out $200,000 in UFC 161 post-fight awards bonuses.
