    When a fighter doesn't make weight, the other fighter gets 20% of the purse. Do they get 20% of bonuses as well? (ie, knockout of the night, win bonus etc)?

    UFC has stated that the fighter that missed weight is ineligible for the bonus, but we all know that's bullshit.

    The legal answer is NO.

    The opponent only gets the contracted show money. The rest is at the discretion of the organization.

    What about when when AJ shpuld have gotten the KOTN bonus but missed weight and did not get it? Not sure why you say it's BS that a fighter is ineligible for the bonus

    it is BS, because that is up to the company. And since when has UFC/Dana ever been consistent in keeping his word.

    Sure it's possible but we also know he hates it when guys don't make weight. It is pure speculation that anone who dosen't make weight gets a bonus.

    Not really. You said it's bullshit, when you have no idea.
