Main event fighters Diego Sanchez and Joe Stevenson, along with Paulo Thiago and Demian Maia each earned $40,000 bonuses for their performances at “UFC 95: Sanchez vs. Stevenson.” The bonuses were announced by the UFC at the post-fight press conference.
The $40,000 payouts were down from January’s UFC 94 $65,000 bonuses, but are consistent with what the UFC paid out during their last trip to the UK for UFC 93.
In the night’s main event, Diego Sanchez’s first fight at lightweight turned into a slug fest with Joe Stevenson for the entire 15 minute fight. Sanchez mixed his strikes well as Stevenson stalked him throughout the match.
