UFC 101 bonuses: B.J. Penn and Forrest Griffin take $60K, Anderson Silva earns $120K
PHILADELPHIA – B.J. Penn and Forrest Griffin each earned $60,000 in “fight night” bonuses – while Anderson Silva took home $120,000 as a dual winner – for their performances at “UFC 101: Declaration.”
UFC 101 took place Saturday at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia and aired live on pay-per-view.
The bonus amounts were down significantly from the record $100,000 awards issued at UFC 100, but were on par with the $60,000 awards issued at May’s UFC 98, the UFC’s most recent U.S.-based card prior to the historic UFC 100.
