Take a look at the winners of the UFC 249 post- battle bonuses, consisting of Justin Gaethje making 2 bonuses for his main event title success
2 people, Justin Gaethje and Francis Ngannou, were the ones who came away with post- battle bonuses following UFC 249.
UFC 249, which took location in front of an empty VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida, marked the first significant sporting event to happen in the U.S. given that the sports world was basically placed on time out by the global coronavirus pandemic.
Out of the 22 fighters who completed on the card, just Gaethje and Ngannou came away with post- battle bonuses, with Gaethje making honors of both the Efficiency of the Night and Battle of the Night honors. As a result, this now offers Gaethje 9 post- battle bonuses in his first 7 UFC bouts– something never ever in the past accomplished in the promo’s history.
In the UFC 249 main event, Gaethje combated Tony Ferguson to figure out the interim UFC light-weight champ. It was a harsh war with a lot of trading, however Gaethje continually overcame the former interim champ. And in the end, Gaethje made a 5th-round blockage, offering him both an efficiency perk and the Battle of the Night.
2 battles previously, Ngannou made his efficiency perk with a 20-second knockout of Jairzinho Rozenstruik, handing Rozenstruik his first loss in Mixed Martial Arts and offering Ngannou his fourth-straight first-round knockout success and ensuring him a chance at the winner of Stipe Miocic vs. Daniel Cormier 3.
All awards earn a fighter an extra $50,000 on top of their battle handbags and any win bonuses, suggesting Gaethje makes an extra $100,000 for his 2 award wins.
