UFC president Dana White revealed the UFC 141 post-fight bonuses at the official press conference following Friday’s live pay-per-view event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Taking home “Fight of the Night” honors were Nate Diaz and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone. Diaz won the fight with an impressive, one-sided unanimous decision, however both he and Cerrone pocketed an extra $75,000 for the evening’s best tilt.
The “Knockout of the Night” award went to Johny Hendricks, who’s shocking 12-second KO of top-ranked UFC welterweight contender Jon Fitch earned him an additional $75,000 in pay as well.
There were no “Submission of the Night” bonuses given, as no fight on the UFC 141: “Lesnar vs. Overeem” card ended with a submission hold.
