The Ultimate Fighter 18 Finale bonuses have been announced, with two fighters taking home an additional $50,000, and one receiving $100,000.

Flyweights Josh Sampo and Ryan Benoit were awarded the “Fight of the Night” bonuses for their two round scrap. Sampo won the fight via rear naked choke. Unfortunately for him though, he failed to make weight prior to the bout. Due to that, Dana White decided to award his half of the “Fight of the Night” bonus to Benoit instead.

TUF 18 winner Chris Holdsworth meanwhile defeated Davey Grant with a first round rear-naked choke to win the “Submission of the Night” bonus.

Lastly, Nate Diaz earned the “Knockout of the Night” bonus for his performance against Gray Maynard in the main event.

The TUF 18 Finale took place on Saturday in Las Vegas, Nevada.
