UFC president Dana White revealed the "Of The Night" bonuses following a less than stellar UFC 122: "Marquardt vs. Okami" event in Oberhausen, Germany earlier today.
Taking in an extra $60,000 for "Fight Of The Night" honors were UFC newcomers Pascal Krauss and Mark Scanlon. Krauss took the fight via unanimous decision on the preliminary card, after three hard-fought rounds.
Earning the "Knockout Of The Night" bonus, also for $60,000, was Karlos Vemola. Vemola scored a technical knockout win over UFC and Ultimate Fighter veteran Seth Petruzelli in the first round, with a barrage of elbows and punches.
And finally, Germany's favorite son on the UFC 122 card on Saturday afternoon, Dennis Siver, picked up $60,000 of his own for the "Submission Of The Night" award. Siver earned the honor due to his impressive first-round rear-naked choke victory over former Ultimate Fighter veteran Andre Winner.
