bonusLas Vegas, June 20, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Even if Keith Jardine lost his fourth consecutive bout, The Ultimate Fighter has no doubt brought smile to his face and made him wealthier by $25,000.

After The Ultimate Fight Season Finale got over on Saturday night the UFC declared bonus amounting to $25,000 for four players of the night. While both Keith Jardine and Matt Hamill receive a bonus the other two lucky persons were Court McGee and Chris Leben.

The first two received the bonus as they were awarded with the title of the Fight of the Night Award. Chris Leben was awarded with the Knockout of the Night award and Court McGee got wealthier for his take against Kris McCray that brought him the Submission of the Night award.

There is no denying the fact that all the four players deserved the accolade that they have received in the form of the bonuses. The light heavyweight bout of Matt Hamill and Keith Jardine was the most exciting bouts of the night which remained indecisive till the end.

For Chris Leben, he did a brilliant job by defending the takedown attempts made by Aaron Simpson and then going for a knockout with a flurry of punches that not only rocked his opponent but also the whole audience. The referee put a halt to the fight at the end. Court McGee got the bonus for his amazing tactics to get the rear naked choke towards the end of the second round of the bout.

These fighters made The Ultimate Fighter Season 11 finale a worth watch. The UFC officials on Saturday said that around 1,708 fans came to watch the game in The Palm of Las Vegas generating an amount of $430,250 from the gate receipts.
