Fighters Earn $30K UFCFN 16 bonuses (**SPOILERS**)
Jim Miller, Matt Wiman, Josh Koscheck and Steve Cantwell each earned $30,000 "fight night" bonuses for their performances at "UFC Fight Night 16: UFC Fight for the Troops." "UFC Fight Night 16: UFC Fight for the Troops" took place Wednesday at the Crown Coliseum in Fayetteville, N.C., in conjunction with the Fort Bragg military institution, and aired live on Spike TV. The bonus amounts were significantly lower than the $65,000 awards issued at UFC 91 in November, but were on par with the $30,000 bonuses issued at UFC Fight Night 15 in September. The UFC announced the bonuses at the post-fight press conference, and the awards were confirmed by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

UFC 91 Does More Than 1 Million Pay-Per-View Buys
UFC has not made a public announcement of the buys for UFC 91, but privately, Dana White has told people the number is right at the 1 million mark. Two others have confirmed that at least this is the number UFC is talking about internally, with the actual figure being pegged at 1,010,000 buys. It was stated that if they do well in late reported buys, they have a solid to good shot at beating the 1,050,000 mark set in 2006 by Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz, and are not publicly saying anything because they want to announce it was the biggest ever, which at this point, is something they can’t say. Keep in mind our trending patterns came in at 800,000 to 850,000 buys. Lesnar seems to be the one person whose drawing power never gets fully reflected in early trending patterns.

Do or die: Josh Koscheck UFC Fight Night 16 interview exclusive with MMAmania.com
What’s up Josh? Thanks for taking the time once again to speak with MMAmania.com. Josh Koscheck: You got these questions for me or what? We going to do this? I’m ready to talk some shit! (Laughs). MMAmania.com: So how have you been since we last spoke … are you ready for Wednesday night? Josh Koscheck: I’m good. I feel good. Training went great — I could not have asked for a better training camp. I’m in great shape. In fact, we were talking tonight about how the fight against Thiago Alves was actually just part of this training camp to get ready for Yoshida. I’ve been training to get ready for this guy forever so I’m ready to go. I just want to get in the Octagon and get this fight over with so I can go home and relax for awhile. MMAmania.com: How long before you accepted the fight against Alves on short notice were you training for “Zenko?” Josh Koscheck: A few weeks. I fought Thiago on October 25. So it was probably around the end of September. That was a long time ago. MMAmania.com: Is there any concern that perhaps you overtrained for this fight or are maybe a little exhausted mentally and/or physically? Josh Koscheck: No, I’m always in the gym whether or not I have a fight coming up. There’s a difference between being in shape and being in fighting shape. I always stay in shape — I’m not a person who just puts six-or eight-week camps together once bout agreements are signed. It’s just a matter of turning it up as the fight gets closer and doing whatever it takes to prepare for my upcoming opponents. MMAmania.com: Were you in “fighting shape” for Thiago Alves? Josh Koscheck: I don’t know. Mentally, yes, without a doubt. Physically, I wasn’t gassed after the fight. I could have gone a few more rounds. I’d just say it is what it is — I’m not going to make any excuses regarding that performance.
