UFC president Dana White followed through on his word and took care of the little guy.

Bantamweight Jared Papazian, whom many thought was robbed of a “Fight of the Night” award alongside Mike Easton at the recent UFC on FX event on Jan. 20, was recently given a $15,000 bonus for his efforts. MMAWeekly.com learned of the bonus through Papazian’s manager, Darin Harvey.

The promotion originally awarded the fight night bonus to Pat Barry and Christian Morecraft for their main card performances, but fans immediately let White know they disagreed via Twitter. The UFC boss’ response was a positive one, showing an appreciation for fan passion.

Far be it from me to tell Dana White how to run his business (although I try via twitter all the time ), but this is one instance where they definitely got the discretionary bonuses wrong. Good on Zuffa for hooking up Papazian. Hopefully they will bring him back in the future.
