Submissions of The Night

The Ultimate Fighting Championship began awarding fighter bonuses for Submission of the Night, along with Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night honors in October 2006, at the Tito Ortiz versus Ken Shamrock 3 live special on Spike. That night, ground technician Jason MacDonald tapped Ed Herman by first round triangle choke to pocket $30,000 for the first-ever Submission of the Night award. Since that time, the UFC has regularly awarded its SOTN honors, alongside Fight of the Night and KO of the Night, at the post-fight press conferences following each event. Ultimate Fighting Championship President Dana White regularly determines the awards - one in each category, though exceptions are not unusual - based on his view of the fights, and without any formal judging criteria. The monetary awards provide an incentive for fighters to look for the finish, and honor the night's best performances.

The UFC has given out well over $1,000,000 in post-fight bonuses to date, and the amounts of the awards have generally increased over time, with the $40K, $50K, $60K, $70K and $80K barriers all falling in succession in recent years. UFC 100 offered the single highest post-fight bonuses to date, with $100,000 per luck recipient, but the UFC brass made an exception for that landmark occasion and the awards were reduced for the next event.

Out of a total of 65 Submission of the Night awards given out from October 2006 through August 2010, inclusive, 32 were given to preliminary card fights (49%), 24 were given to televised main card fights excluding main events (37%), and 9 were given to main events (14%). UFCs 92 and 94 did not feature a submission; UFC 96 featured only one, by Tamdan McCrory, but White elected not to give out a submission bonus. Twin SOTN bonuses were given out at UFC 117, Ultimate Fight Night 22, and UFC 124, each in 2010.

The 65 Submission of the Night awards referenced above have been bestowed across the five UFC weight classes, plus catchweight bouts, as follows: lightweight, 22 (34%); welterweight, 14 (22%); middleweight, 20 (31%); light heavyweight, 4 (6%); heavyweight, 4 (6%); catchweight, 1 (1%). While the heavier weight classes dominate the Knockout of the Night awards (understandably, as they deliver a higher percentage of knockouts), the lighter weight classes tend to deliver the most Submission of the Night and Fight of the Night awards.

Many of the UFC's top stars have graced the Submission of the Night roll, including knockout specialists like Mirko Filipovic and wrestling aces Jake Rosholt and Brock Lesnar. "The Prodigy," BJ Penn, who holds four submissions in the Octagon (all by Rear Naked Choke) has garnered Submission of the Night honors two times, against Joe Stevenson at UFC 80 and Kenny Florian at UFC 101. Dustin Hazelett equaled Penn's number of awards, with "McLovin's" two Submissions of the Night both coming in 2008, at the TUF 7 Finale and UFC 91, respectively. The two slick finishes together netted Hazelett a cool $80,000 in extra bonus money.

Lightweight Jiu-Jitsu wizard Charles Oliveira burst out of the gates in 2010, going 2-for-2 in SOTN honors in his first two Octagon performances after tapping Darren Elkins and Efrain Escudero with a triangle and an RNC, respectively. Oliveira, who received a base pay of $6,000 for his Octagon debut against Elkins, made $40,000 for each of the two bonuses for a total of $80,000 in 2010 award money. Grappling deity Demian Maia did Oliveira one better to begin his UFC career, going 3-for-3 in Subs of the Night in his first three appearances for Zuffa beginning in 2007. Maia holds the current record with four total SOTN awards inside the cage. The unluckiest man in the history of the Submission of the Night award is surely UFC pioneer Royce Gracie, not because he ever tapped inside the Octagon, but because his UFC record 11 wins by submission never netted him an extra dime - they all came before the award was established.
