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.

Fighting for respect: Mike Swick UFC Fight Night 16 interview
Since dropping to welterweight following his first-ever loss in the UFC to Yushin Okami (22-4), Mike “Quick” Swick (12-2) has been looking for that breakthrough performance. He didn’t get it in his majority decision win over Josh Burkman (18-8) at UFC Fight Night 12. He looked significantly better, but not great, four and a half months later when he outpointed the surging Marcus Davis (15-4) at UFC 85 to earn the unanimous decision. Accordingly, Swick plans to make an even bigger statement tonight against Jonathan “The Road Warrior” Goulet (22-9) at UFC Fight Night 16: “Fight for the Troops.”

When asked if St. Pierre would face Anderson Silva if he got past Penn at UFC 94, White answered, "No. If he beats B.J. Penn, he'll fight Thiago Alves. And then, if he beats Thiago, maybe we'll start talking about (St. Pierre and Silva) meeting at a catch weight fight or GSP going right to 185 and fighting." White later clarified that Alves will get the shot, not only if St. Pierre wins, but even if it is Penn that wins the UFC 94 mega-fight. "He's next in line for a title shot. If GSP beats B.J. Penn, then (Alves) fights GSP. If B.J. Penn wins, then he fights B.J. And then he'd have to defend that title for a while before I let him move up and try to fight Anderson."
