    Yes, when 1) they put together really impressive performances and/or 2) the main card turns out to be a stinker.

    Yes. Both of them were awarded to preliminary guys on the last card.

    there's this website called wikipedia. you should look into it.

    Last 3 events:

    UFC 182: Both POTN bonuses went to undercard fighters

    Machida/Dolloway: 4 POTN bonuses were handed out. Only one went to a guy on the prelims (first fight of the night)

    Dos Santos/Miocic: 1/2 POTN bonuses went to a guy on the prelims (first fight of the night)

    so to answer your question, yes.

    Ian Entwhistle got one on the last Brazil card and he was in the very first prelim.

    They used to get them fairly frequently when it was Sub/KO of the Night. But now that it's the vague "Performance" the UFC gets to pretend its only for the top fighters.

    I think about a year after POTN system was introduced instead of SOTN/KOTN, there was an article on bloodyelbow (or somewhere else maybe) with statistic about the bonus structure.

    Main-carders get it more often and main/co-main eventers get it the most, but guys on the undercard do get it too, sometimes, as a lot of people have already told you so.

    C'mon chief. You can't whittle away the questions with answers readily available elsewhere. The only conversations left over would require tin-foil hats, holocaust denials, and "Truther" tattoos.
