Fights of The Night

The Ultimate Fighting Championship began awarding fighter bonuses for Fight of the Night, Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night honors in October 2006, at the Tito Ortiz versus Ken Shamrock 3 live special on free cable. That night, Matt Hamill defeated Seth Petruzelli by decision to take the UFC's first ever Fight of the Night award, with both winner and loser receiving $30,000 bonuses for their efforts. The award next returned at UFC 70 six months later, and since that time, the UFC has bestowed a Fight of the Night award following each event. The Zuffa-owned World Extreme Cagefighting Organization, which held its first event under Zuffa management with WEC 25, also awarded Fight of the Night bonuses at every event from WEC 35 in August of 2008 through its final event, WEC 53.

The Fight of the Night award is determined informally and has no fixed criteria. UFC President Dana White typically announces FOTN and other bonus winners, along with the monetary amounts of the awards, at the post-fight press conference immediately following each event. The awards serve two purposes. First, they incentivize the fighters to deliver action and take risks. Second, they recognize and honor the evening's best performances.

On rare occasions, if he believes the Octagon combat merits it, White will distribute more than one Fight of the Night award. In such instances, the bonus money is not split halfwise among the two fights but simply doubled to accommodate them both. White awarded two Fights of the Night at UFC 93 (Marcus Davis vs. Chris Lytle; "Shogun" Rua vs. Mark Coleman) and again at UFC 94 (John Howard vs. Chris Wilson; Clay Guida vs. Nate Diaz). At The Ultimate Fighter 9 Finale in June 2009, White took the unprecedented step of awarding not two, but three Fights of the Night (Stevenson vs. Diaz; Sanchez vs. Guida; Lytle vs. Burns). White next doubled up on Fight of the Night awards at 2010's stellar UFC 116 card, when Chris Leben vs. Yoshihiro Akiyama and Stephan Bonnar vs. Krzysztof Soszynski shared the honors.

The Fight of the Night purse sizes have generally increased in conjunction with the success of the organization, with the biggest events tending to offer the largest award amounts. There is some variance, however. From the initial $30,000 bonuses awarded at Ortiz vs. Shamrock 3 and at UFC 70, the amount increased to a $60,000 bonus for Forrest Griffin and Rashad Evans's battle at UFC 92 in December 2008. UFC 100 in July 2009 dangled $100,000 bonuses in front of the fighters for each award. At UFC 116 one year later, the amount was $75,000. The lesser Ultimate Fight Night and TUF Finales still tend to provide awards in the $25,000 to $30,000 range, though there have been exceptions. At UFC Fight Night 22 in September 2010, the awards were $40,000 apiece.

As the award is open to any and all of the fights on a given night regardless of televised billing, a Fight of the Night award has the potential to greatly exceed an up-and-coming fighter's fight purse, and can make his year financially. Josh Neer, for example, made only $9,000 in base pay but $30,000 in bonus money for his FOTN against Nate Diaz at Fight Night 15. Not surprisingly, perhaps, fighters have begun to (only half-jokingly) campaign for the award during their post-fight comments to Joe Rogan inside the Octagon. Mirko CroCop did so (for Submission of the Night honors) following his chokeout of Pat Barry at UFC 115, as did Roy "Big Country" Nelson shortly thereafter.

Out of 70 total UFC Fight of the Night awards given out from October 2006 through August 2010, inclusive, 14 were given to main event fights (20%), 16 were given to preliminary card fights (23%), and 40 were given to main card fights excluding main events (57%).

For the same data set, the 70 awards were bestowed across the five standard UFC weight classes, plus catchweight bouts, as follows: lightweight, 25 (36%); welterweight, 15 (21%); middleweight, 12 (17%); light heavyweight, 12 (17%); heavyweight, 4 (6%); catchweight, 2 (3%). The apparent trend is that the lighter weight classes dominate Fight of the Night awards, as well as Submission of the Night awards, whereas the heavier weight classes dominate Knockout of the Night awards.

The UFC's current Fight of the Night kings are Chris Lytle (welterweight) and Tyson Griffin (lightweight), who have each earned the award four times. Lightweights Thiago Tavares, "Handsome" Matt Wiman, Clay Guida, Sam Stout and Joe Lauzon have each won Fight of the Night honors three times. Japan's Yoshihiro Akiyama has also won the award three times, and even more impressively, batted .1000 through each of first three appearances in the Octagon, winning Fight of the Night honors for his battles with Alan Belcher at UFC 100, Chris Leben at UFC 116 and Michael Bisping at UFC 120.
