After a very successful debut for the Ultimate Fighting Championship in Canada, UFC president Dana White announced at the post fight press conference the winners of the show bonuses, including Fight of the Night, Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night.
Each of the award winners will receive a $75,000 bonus, which is the largest publicized bonus the UFC has given away to date.
Jonathan Goulet and Kuniyoshi Hironaka each picked up a $75,000 bonus check for their respective performances in front of the 21,309 fans at the Bell Centre for the Fight of the Night. Goulet battled back after almost being finished earlier in the fight to pull out a gutsy win in the second round.
Jason MacDonald settled his grudge with Joe Doerksen by knocking his fellow Canadian out and also got the Knockout of the Night bonus for his outstanding performance.
Submission of the Night went to Demian Maia, whose unbelievable grappling skills earned him a victory over Ed Herman by triangle choke in their contest.
