Payout Perspective:

Usman also received a $50,000 bonus which makes it a great night of earning for the welterweight.  The first asterisk notes that Kim, who lost to Antonina Shevchenko, forfeited $6,000 of her purse for missing weight.  The second asterisk notes that Glenn, who also lost, forfeited $5,000 of his show money for missing weight.  Also of note, it looks as though the TUF contestants made a little more than in previous TUF finales.
