UFC Fight Night 41 fighter bonuses: Gegard Mousasi, CB Dollaway, Magnus Cedenblad, Niklas Backstrom


The Ultimate Fighting Championship kicked off a full day of mixed martial arts action with “UFC Fight Night 41: Munoz vs. Mousasi” in Berlin, Germany. Following the bout, UFC president Dana White announced the Performance of the Night bonuses for the event and the winners came as no surprise.

There was one surprise, however, with the UFC opting not to hand out a Fight of the Night bonus.

Instead, the UFC handed out $50,000 Performance of the Night bonuses to four different fighters: Gegard Mousasi, CB Dollaway, Magnus Cedenblad, Niklas Backstrom.

Mousasi scored a dominant first-round submission win over Mark Munoz in the main event of the night, while Dollaway was impressive in the co-main event. Cedenblad and Backstrom earned their bonuses for impressive submission victories of their own.
