UFC 245 performance bonuses

UFC 245 was held on December 14th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
 
In addition to being paid a fixed amount to show and another, usually equal amount to win, each UFC event also awards four $50,000 Performance Bonuses. Usually, there is a Fight of the Night in which both fighters are given a performance bonus, and a performance bonus to the winner in two fights, sometimes, as happened here, no fight of the night is awarded; rather, four performance bonuses were given. "Performance Bonus" means the fight made you say "HOLY F@$%ING $#!@."
 
One of the primary differences between the UFC model and the boxing model is the depth of the card. Sometimes the greatest fight isn't the main event, or close to it. However, at UFC 245 three of the four bonuses went to the main card.

In addition, to the bonuses and purses, there are:
•Reebok pay, based on tenure, for wearing the distinctive apparel during fight week and in the Octagon;
•Sometimes fighters get discretionary "locker room" bonuses of varying amounts; despite their name, locker room bonuses actually come in the mail now;
•In some cases there is an LOA [Letter of Agreement] on the contract for additional income; and,
•The most elite fighters get points on the pay per view for PPV events.
