UFC 175 Fighter Bonuses: Fighters Collect on $50,000 Each in Vegas


Chris Weidman, Lyoto Machida, Ronda Rousey and Rob Font earned $50,000 in fight night bonuses for their efforts at UFC 175 in Las Vegas.

Weidman and Machida scored the Fight of the Night award, while Rousey and Font each earned Performance of the Night awards.

In the evening's main event, Weidman defended his UFC middleweight against Machida in a five-round headliner. Despite strong efforts in the second half of the fight by Machida, Weidman persevered and earned the unanimous judges' decision with scores of 49-45, 48-47 and 49-46.

Rousey took all of 16 seconds to take care of business against Alexis Davis, knocking out the challenger with nine consecutive punches after a judo throw, en route to the win.

Font likely enjoyed the biggest night of his fighting career, knocking out George Roop in their contest. UFC 175 was Font's organizational debut.
