Nate Diaz, Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone and Johny Hendricks each took home an additional $75,000 following Friday's UFC 141: “Lesnar vs. Overeem” event, which emanated from Las Vegas, Nevada's MGM Grand Garden Arena.
Hendricks earned the evening's “Knockout of the Night” award for his stunning 12-second knockout of top-ranked welterweight contender Jon Fitch.
Pulling in “Fight of the Night” honors was a no-brainer, as both Diaz and Cerrone pocketed an extra 75k for their three-round standup war, which served as the co-main event for the show.
No “Submission of the Night” bonus was given since no one pulled off a victory inside the Octagon on Friday night via a submission hold.
The “Knockout of the Night” and “Fight of the Night” awards were officially announced by company president Dana White at the UFC 141: “Lesnar vs. Overeem” post-fight press conference.
