0

The following is information on the fight of the night, KO of the fight, and submission of the night from the guys over at www.mmajunkie.com:

Wanderlei Silva, Rousimar Palhares, Goran Reljic and Wilson Gouveia all secured $75,000 “fight night” bonuses stemming from Saturday's UFC 84 event, MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has confirmed.

The 11-fight event took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The bonus winners were revealed in a post-fight press conference.

Silva earned the Knockout of the Night bonus, Palhares earned the Submission of the Night bonus, and Reljic and Gouveia each picked up Fight of the Night honors.

Silva rebounded from a three-fight losing streak in spectacular fashion, battering opponent Keithe Jardine with a series of blows that prompted a TKO stoppage just 36 seconds in the first round.

UFC newcomer Palhares dominated his fight with Ivan Salaverry and went to work early for the submission. He secured the rear-naked choke and transitioned into an arm-bar to force the stoppage at 2:36 of the first round.

Reljic and Gouveia split Fight of the Night honors for their televised performance. Reljic posted his eighth straight victory — and snapped Gouveia's four-fight win streak in the UFC — with a TKO at 3:15 of the second round.
