Chuck Liddell, Wanderlei Silva, Georges St. Pierre, and Eddie Sanchez all left UFC 79 $50,000 richer as they received the Fight, Submission, and KO Of The Night bonuses, respectively.

Sad to see Sanchez got a pay bonus for that fight.

Yeah but ya know, that 50k really helps if you don't spend it on booze and hookers, perhaps next time we will see a better sanchez because he will be able to train better. Who knows

to be fair Sanchez tried at least. He gave up a ton of weight to Palelei and the guy just clinched him the whole time. When he broke out he landed some good shots. I really expected Pelelei to go down sooner.

And there were only 2 TKOs on the night, so it was either Sanchez or Roan Carneiro.

sanchez did not try, he let the other crappy fighter clinch with him, does not deserve a bonus it should not even get paid out, just give out two submissions of the night to GSP and Machida
