Manchester Presser and Bonus Recap

Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC Fight Night in Manchester
UFC president Dana White and managing director of Europe Garry Cook led the post-fight press conference in Manchester with some big news: The UFC will return to London on March 8 with a fight between Alexander Gustafsson and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira. White confirmed that if Gustafsson wins and Jon Jones beats Glover Teixeira in their upcoming bout, Gustafsson and Jones will rematch for the light heavyweight title.

Also in attendance were main event winner Lyoto Machida, his opponent and friend Mark Munoz, Ross Pearson and UFC Manchester winners Luke Barnatt, Norman Parke and Jimi Manuwa. Guest fighter Alexander Gustafsson also sat at the dais.

Post-fight bonuses of $50,000 each went to Machida for Knockout of the Night, Nicholas Musoke for Submission of the Night, and Barnett and Andrew Craig for Fight of the Night.

Cook later added that a rematch between Pearson and Melvin Guillard -- whose promising Manchester bout ended in a no contest due to accidental foul -- would likely take place at the March 8 event in London. Cook said that plans are also underway for 2014 UFC fight cards in Ireland; Malmo, Sweden; Lodz, Poland; Istanbul, Turkey and Berlin, Germany.
