UFC Hands Out Latest Twitter Bonuses

| by

UFC officials a few days ago revealed the recipients of the promotion's latest round of Twitter bonuses. Separated into categories based on the amount of followers they began the quarter with, fighters are given $5,000 checks for most followers, biggest percentage of growth in followers, and most creative.

In the category of "most followers," UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva, UFC lightweight champion Benson Henderson, Chael Sonnen and The Ultimate Fighter 8 castmember Joe Duarte were all given bonuses.

For "biggest percentage of growth in followers," Henderson and Duarte were again given bonuses, joining Frankie Edgar and Alistair Overeem.

Finally, for "most creative," Jason "Mayhem" Miller, Dan Hardy, Kenny Florian and Ronda Rousey received bonuses.

That means that Henderson and Duarte both walked away with $10,000. Not too shabby for a little social networking.
