UFC president Dana White revealed the "of the night" bonuses at the UFC 124 post-fight press conference last night in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
Earning $100,000 for the "Fight Of The Night" were main-event combatants Georges St-Pierre and Josh Koscheck. The decision to name GSP-Koscheck the fight of the night was voted on by the fans. White claimed he felt the Matt Riddle vs. Sean Piersen was the best fight on the show, and mentioned that he "took care of them," likely meaning some kind of bonus to those guys as well.
The "Knockout Of The Night" was a no-brainer, as Mac Danzig takes home an extra $100,000 for his beautiful one-punch knockout of Joe "Daddy" Stevenson.
"Submission Of The Night" honors were split between Mark Bocek and Jim Miller. Each guy received $50,000.
