The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 15 Finale from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, has officially wrapped, which means it's time for those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights to get a little extra grease for their efforts.

To the tune of $40,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 22 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's headed home with a second sack of simoleons.

Submission of the Night -- Michael Chiesa

Knockout of the Night -- Justin Lawrence and

Knockout of the Night part deux -- Martin Kampmann

Fight of the Night -- Justin Lawrence vs. John Cofer

No love for Charles really?His submission was slick and something we don't see every day. Way better then a RNC. imo

I also thought Charles/Brookins fight was very entertaining, I forsure his fight would have gotten a bonus.

instead of lawrence winning 2 bonuses i would rather of seen someone else get the 2nd one. there was a ton of great fights, no reason for one person to get 2 bonuses.

He's a blackhouse fighter it's in his contract to get Anderson Silva money.

I agree on the Oliveira fight.

Much slicker submission. I was screaming at the TV when he slid his arm through!

Oliveira got robbed! Totally deserved SOTN!

That Lawrence KO sounded like a homerun in baseball. I wasn't looking at the screen at the time, but when i heard it, i knew someone got KTFO. Very impressive, but he has lots of hype to live up to. Going to be a difficult road for him.

Lol @ the people calling for eburger to dethrone gsp. Its actually pretty funny to me that kamp vs burger was almost exactly how everyone speculated: kampmann will get barraged early and if he can weather that storm he will most likely win. Great fights all around

I think most of us expected this fight to last into the championship rounds...that was where this line of thinking comes into play, not in the 2nd round. Ellenberger still has a better chance to beat GSP than Kampmann does

RNC's probably account for like 60% of all submission wins in the UFC. A Brabo choke is far more impressive

Most people picked Ellenberger to win though.......

I agree with the first half there, but imo, the line of thinking was that if kampman could survive the early onslaught, he had a better chance of winning the fight in the long run. I wouldn't have guessed kamp as early as the 2nd, but other than the time it took, it played out how I described. Kamp was in serious trouble early on where he very easily could have gone down the way the he did in the Daley fight. If I recall correctly, this was how people were weighing in on who would win...would burger be too much too early for kamp or not.
As for burger having a better chance at beating GSP...we may never know.
