UFC 93 bonuses and awards for 'Franklin vs Henderson' PPVfights

UFC 93: "Franklin vs. Henderson" from the O2 Arena in Dublin, Ireland, has come to a close.

Welterweights Chris "Lights Out" Lytle and Marcus "The Irish Hand Grenade" Davis promised to put on a "Fight of the Night" type performance and they came through with the goods.

After the event, the UFC also came through with the goods by officially awarding the razor close, split decision slugfest, "Fight of the Night" honors. Lytle and Davis each pocketed an extra $40,000 worth or dough for for their respective performances.

A second "Fight of the Night" was also awarded to the co-main event, which was a 205-pound match up between Brazilian Chute Boxe Academy standout Mauricio "Shogun" Rua and UFC Hall of Famer Mark Coleman. Their fight went back and forth nearly the entire three rounds before Shogun scored a late technical knockout.

They'll each take home the $40,000 in bonus money.

In a match that did not make the PPV broadcast, Dennis Siver stopped Nate Mohr in the third round after landing a David Loiseau-esque spinning back kick to the liver, which he followed up with some fight ending strikes.

The sensational finish won "Knockout of the Night" for the German.

And finally, by process of elimination, Alan Belcher scored the bonus money for "Submission of the Night" after catching UFC newcomer Denis Kang in a fight ending guillotine with seconds remaining in round two. It was the only submission finish on the card.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 93:

Knockout of the Night -- Dennis Siver

Submission of the Night -- Alan "The Talent" Belcher

Fight of the Night -- Marcus "The Irish Hand Grenade" Davis vs. Chris "Lights Out" Lytle and Mauricio "Shogun" Rua vs. Mark "The Hammer" Coleman

Each fighter received $40,000 for their efforts in addition to their respective base salaries, which is $20,000 less than the $60,000 awards issued three weeks ago at UFC 92: "The Ultimate 2008".
