All UFC Superstars Who Have Received Bonuses And Rewards In 2023

9 months ago By Sports Desk

In the high-octane world of mixed martial arts, fighters who step into the octagon put everything on the line to entertain and amaze fans around the globe. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) acknowledges their efforts by awarding cash bonuses to the standout performers after each event. 

These bonuses, known as the UFC Bonus Awards, include “Fight of the Night,” “Performance of the Night,” “Knockout of the Night,” and “Submission of the Night.” In 2023, the UFC continued its tradition of recognizing exceptional performances by its fighters. Let’s take a closer look at the UFC superstars who received these prestigious bonuses and rewards in 2023.

Fight of the Night:

The “Fight of the Night” bonus is awarded to the two fighters who delivered the most impressive and thrilling bout on the card. In 2023, several fighters stood out, with Chan Sung Jung, Anthony Johnson, T.J. Dillashaw, Maurício Rua, Stefan Struve, Diego Sanchez, Anthony Pettis, Yoel Romero, Demian Maia, Ovince Saint Preux, Rafael dos Anjos, Robert Whittaker, Vicente Luque, Marlon Vera, Stephen Thompson, Kelvin Gastelum, Israel Adesanya, Alex Caceres, Paul Craig, Derrick Lewis, Sean O’Malley, and Bobby Green all receiving this accolade.

Performance of the Night:

The “Performance of the Night” bonus was introduced by the UFC in 2014 and is awarded to fighters who put on the best and most exciting individual performances. In 2023, many fighters exhibited extraordinary skills and techniques. Notable recipients included Jéssica Andrade, Ronda Rousey, Rose Namajunas, Amanda Nunes, Mackenzie Dern, Zhang Weili, Holly Holm, Joanna Jędrzejczyk, Miesha Tate, Irene Aldana, Angela Hill, Mayra Bueno Silva, Cláudia Gadelha, Valentina Shevchenko, Cortney Casey, Jessica Penne, Maryna Moroz, Molly McCann, Tatiana Suarez, and Marina Rodriguez.

Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night

It’s worth mentioning that the UFC discontinued the “Knockout of the Night” and “Submission of the Night” bonuses in 2014. Since then, fighters have been competing for the “Fight of the Night” and “Performance of the Night” bonuses. This change aimed to reward fighters for their overall performance rather than just one specific aspect of their game.

Female Award Recipients:

The UFC has seen an influx of talented female fighters in recent years, and they are not disappointed when it comes to earning bonuses. In 2023, fighters like Jéssica Andrade, Ronda Rousey, Rose Namajunas, Amanda Nunes, Mackenzie Dern, Zhang Weili, Holly Holm, Joanna Jędrzejczyk, Miesha Tate, Irene Aldana, Angela Hill, Mayra Bueno Silva, Cláudia Gadelha, Valentina Shevchenko, Cortney Casey, Jessica Penne, Maryna Moroz, Molly McCann, Tatiana Suarez, and Marina Rodriguez received recognition for their exceptional performances.

The UFC Bonus Awards serve as a testament to the incredible talent and dedication of fighters in the world’s premier mixed martial arts organization. In 2023, these superstars showcased their skills and determination, and they were duly rewarded with bonuses that acknowledged their exceptional performances. The UFC continues to be a platform where the best fighters in the world can shine and leave a lasting legacy in the sport of mixed martial arts.
