Burns got a win bonus? I'm assuming that's in his contract because surely he didn't deserve it.

My guess is he got what they sometimes call a "flat" payout, which guys like Liddell, Couture, Mirko, and some others have/had in their contracts, where they make a fixed amount win or lose.

he started good, showed crisp muy thai, good body kicks, but than they Reese started to clinch alot, and than Vera was trying to counter Andy, but andy wasnt throwing anything. So alot of the fight was clinch, and them standing in the center of the octagon doing basically nothing, just throwing faints.

Was there a KO and Sub of the night bonus? With respect to Silva, I think Markim should get that bonus (that head kick was brutal)
