The typicaly UFC fight night bonuses were awarded following SAturday's PPV from Las Vegas that featured a main event of UFC Lightweight Champion BJ Penn moving back up to the welterweight division to challenge champ Georges St. Pierre.
It was a long night of decisions with only two fights not going to the judges scorecards. For that reason there was no submission of the night bonus handed out but four fighters would take home the fight of the night bonu. All fighters that earned awards were given an additional $65,000 to go on top of their base pay.
The awards went to:
Knockout of the Night – Lyoto “The Dragon” Machida
Submission of the Night – N/A
Fight of the Night – John Howard vs. Chris Wilson and Clay Guida vs. Nate Diaz
