Fight Night Belo: Presser and Bonus Recap

Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC Fight Night: Teixeira vs. Bader.
A post-fight press conference was held inside Mineirinho Arena in Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Brazil at the conclusion of UFC Fight Night: Teixeira vs. Bader.

Marshall Zelaznik, UFC managing director of international development, presided over the presser alongside event winners Glover Teixeira, Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza, Joseph Benavidez, Piotr Hallman, Rafael Natal and Ali Bagautinov. Light heavyweight headliner Ryan Bader was also in attendance.

Zelaznik confirmed that he'd spoken with UFC president Dana White and matchmaker Joe Silva and that Teixeira -- who'd headlined the event and won via first-round KO -- will get the next light heavyweight title shot against the winner of Jon Jones and Alexander Gustafsson at UFC 165. When asked if he felt he was ready to face a fighter of Jones' caliber, Teixeira answered immediately: "Yes, definitely. I believe in my knockout power, my submission power and my wrestling."

Post-fight bonuses of $50,000 each were announced for four fighters: Teixeira earned Knockout of the Night for his comeback finish of Bader, while Poland's Hallmann won Submission of the Night for his own comeback kimura win over Brazilian Francisco "Massaranduba" Trinaldo.

In addition, Brazilian Rafael Natal and Sweden's Tor Troeng earned Fight of the Night honors for their fifteen-minute middleweight bout which featured knockdowns, nonstop sweeps and reversals aplenty.
