The official payouts for last weekend’s Bellator 51 event in Canton have been released, and all four of the bantamweight tournament semifinalists banked $12,000 for their quarterfinal victories at the event.
The night featured some of the most exciting knockouts in the organization’s history, including flying knees from Joey Holt, Dan Spohn, and Eduardo Dantas. But perhaps the night’s most memorable knockout came from Alexis Vila, who put Bellator featherweight champion Joe Warren to sleep with a left hook just over a minute into their headlining bout.
Of course the fighter payouts don’t include fight night bonuses received by the fighters and any undisclosed payouts to the fighters.
