After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC President Dana White awarded Travis Browne (pictured), Daniel Pineda, Cat Zingano and Miesha Tate each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale.”
Zingano and Tate earned ‘Fight of the Night’ for their thrilling back-and-forth battle. Zingano was the card’s biggest winner. In addition to her bonus check, her TKO victory also scored her a coaching gig on “The Ultimate Fighter 18″ and next dibs at UFC bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey’s crown.
Browne decided to ram his elbows into Gabriel Gonazaga’s dome to take home ‘Knockout of the Night.’
Pineda slapped on a nifty kimura on Justin Lawrence to take ‘Submission of the Night.’
TUF 17 Finale took place inside Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Cat Zingano and Miesha Tate ($50,000/each)
