UFC 169 Post fight bonuses: Varner and Trujillo take home Fight of the Night


The UFC’s annual Super Bowl weekend card has wrapped up, and boy what an event it was. The two Brazilian champions, Renan Barao and Jose Aldo, both defended their titles and staked their claim at the top of the pound for pound list. In the co-main event, Jose Aldo dominated Ricardo Lamas for five rounds en route to a unanimous decision victory. In the main event of the evening, Renan Barao battered Urijah Faber and won via controversial TKO in the very first round.

The true stars of the night were Lightweights, Abel Trujillo and Jamie Varner. The two men underwent an incredible back and forth battle before Trujillo knocked Varner out in the second. The two men were granted the fight of the night bonus, which awards them an extra $75k. Trujillo was also given the knockout of the night bonus as well, which is another 50k in his pocket.

UFC tweeted the post fight bonuses earlier:
