UFC 160 Bonuses: Mike Tyson Has A Say

Former world boxing champion Mike Tyson was on hand for UFC 160: Velasquez vs. Bigfoot 2 Saturday night, watching Octagon-side with UFC president Dana White.

And, while Tyson got into the Octagon several times, he made an impact outside of it, as well.

After Junior dos Santos was initially awarded two fight night bonuses, Tyson nixed the “Knockout of the Night honors” for “Cigano.

Instead, Tyson felt T.J. Grant deserved the $50,000, and White obliged, giving the new No. 1 contender in the lightweight division the check.

Dos Santos still picked up “Fight of the Night” honors with Mark Hunt, while Glover Teixeira netted himself “Submission of the Night.”

The initial numbers were reported as 11,089 in attendance for a live gate of $2.942 million.
