A pair of six-figure UFC contracts were up for grabs Saturday night at “The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale.” A couple of athletes seized the moment by not only winning their respective tournaments, but taking home ‘Fight Night’ bonuses, as well.
Diego Brandao (Pictured) pocketed two bonuses for his thrilling scrap against Dennis Bermudez in the TUF 14 featherweight finals. Each were handed $40,000 checks for ‘Fight of the Night’ courtesy of their back-and-forth battle, but Brandao double-dipped and also scored ‘Submission of the Night’ honors for his 1stRound armbar victory.
John Dodson not only beat T.J. Dillashaw to win the bantamweight tourney, but he also earned ‘Knockout of the Night’ for his controversial 1stRound TKO win.
“The Ultimate Fighter 14 Finale” took place inside The Pearl at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Diego Brandao and Dennis Bermudez ($40,000/each)
