    I can only think of four so far.

    Brad Taveres, Al Iaquinta, Patrick Cummins and Efrain Escudero.

    Iaquinta has had 11 fights in the UFC, not one bonus despite impressive KO victories.

    Escudero has 10 fights in the UFC through three stints, no bonus.

    Tavares has 16 UFC fights, not one bonus.

    Cummins has 11 UFC fights, no bonus.

    Any others you can think of?

    Francis Carmont is close with 9 UFC fights, and not ever receiving a bonus.

    An unnamed UFC official confirmed that Iaquinta was punished with a 'bonus ban' (3 fights?) for several problems, one of them being mouthing off at the UFC even after the UFC paid for his knee surgery.

    court mcgee won fotn in his ufc debut and has gone 12 straight without a bonus.

    In fairness, his fight with whittaker was great.

    His fight with Ponzinibbio was quite entertaining too, though not necessarily from the POV of a Court fan.

    Wilson Reis. 11 UFC fights, 0 bonuses.

    Hint: If you want to find more, look to 125 and 135. They rarely get bonuses.

    One thing these guys all have in common in general is not being very exciting
