Junior Dos Santos claims Mike Tyson “deprived” him of a UFC win bonus, and now he’s collecting what he feels is owed to him.
“When I fought Mark Hunt (in 2013) I had two bonuses of the Night – Best Fight of the Night, and Best Knockout of the Night,” Dos Santos recalled in an exclusive interview with SunSport.
“And Mike Tyson was there watching the fight and at the press conference after the fights, Dana White said, ‘Junior Dos Santos has won two bonuses of the night. Best Fight of the Night, and Best Knockout of the Night.’
“But I was asking Mike Tyson and he told me to give the Knockout of the Night to somebody else!”
Dos Santos continued…
“He said, ‘Why give two bonuses to just one guy?’ So he took away from me $50,000. So he owes me $50,000! He deprived me of that.
“But it was normal back then to have two bonuses on the night and sometimes some guys got three!”
