UFC fighters competing at numbered PPV events will have the chance to earn some extra cash, starting with this weekend’s UFC 273.

Promotion officials announced on Thursday that, in partnership with Crypto.com, the promotion would begin offering “Fan Bonus of the Night” awards at each PPV card. Voted on by fans, three bonuses will be available to fighters: $30,000 for first place, $20,000 for second place, and $10,000 for third place.

All three “Fan Bonus of the Night” awards will be paid out in bitcoin.

These three additional post-fight bonuses will be in addition to the traditional Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night bonuses, which will continue to be awarded by UFC President Dana White.

“Crypto.com has been an official UFC partner for less than a year, and I’m telling you they are already one of the best partners we’ve ever had,” White was quoted as saying in Thursday’s press release. “They’re constantly coming up with new ideas about how we can work together to connect with the fans.  This new Fan Bonus of the Night is an awesome way to get fans more engaged in our events while rewarding the fighters for bad-ass performances.”

Voting for the new bonuses will take place on Crypto.com/FanBonus and will be open to visitors all around the globe. The voting window opens during the preliminary card and runs until one hour following the conclusion of the event.
