UFC is debuting a new system this weekend that will allow viewers to determine which fighters get financial bonuses for their performances.
The “Fan Bonus of the Night” will debut at the promotion’s April 9th pay-per-view card, per an announcement made Thursday.
The system will give out the cryptocurrency Bitcoin to fighters that are most voted on by viewers. The prizes will be worth the U.S. dollar equivalent of $30,000, $20,000 and $10,000 each.
These bonuses will be voted on by fans and will happen for each PPV event that takes place in a year.
The program is sponsored by cryptocurrency exchange service Crypto.com, which has been in partnership with the UFC since mid-2021.
UFC is still planning on doing their regular “Performance of the Night” bonuses, which regularly hand out $50,000 to four fighters each at the conclusion of every event.
