The UFC, the world’s premier mixed martial arts association, and Crypto.com, the world’s fastest-growing cryptocurrency platform, and UFC’s Official Cryptocurrency Platform Partner, announced today the creation of new Fight Night bonus payments for UFC athletes, who will be paid in cryptocurrency as a consequence of the collaboration between the mixed martial arts company and Crypto.com.
The new Fan Bonus of the Night initiative will pay three bitcoin bonuses to the top three fighters competing in each UFC Pay-Per-View event, as determined by fan voting worldwide. The bitcoin payments will vary from US$30,000 for the first position and US$20,000 for the second to US$10,000 for the third spot. UFC will distribute the incentives in bitcoin (BTC) at the current US dollar exchange rate.
The Fan Bonus of the Night will be in addition to the customary Fight of the Night and Performance incentives given to UFC competitors after each UFC event by UFC President Dana White.
The Fan Bonus of the Night debuted at UFC® 273: VOLKANOVSKI vs. THE KOREAN ZOMBIE on April 9, 2022, at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida.
