UFC Skimps On Performance Bonuses At UFC Vegas 20

UFC only handed out three of the traditional four performance bonuses at UFC Vegas 20.

Jimmie Rivera and Pedro Munhoz earned $50,000 bonuses for their action-packed three-round scrap on Saturday night. Both men landed big shots, and although Rivera closed the gap in round three, it was Munhoz's crushing calf kicks that earned him the judges' decision.

The promotion normally hands out two Performance of the Night awards; however, only one recipient was announced at the conclusion of UFC Vegas 20. Ronnie Lawrence scored the only finish on the entire card, a third-round TKO over Vince Cachero. The UFC occasionally hands out a performance bonus for a dominant decision win. That was not the case on Saturday.
