Ufc81-bonus_medium

UFC on FOX 1: "Velasquez vs. Dos Santos" from the Honda Center in Anaheim, California, has officially wrapped, which means it's time for those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights to get a little extra grease for their efforts.

To the tune of $65,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 20 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "The Golden State" with a second sack of simoleons.

In one of the biggest landslides in UFC history, freshly crowned heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos' waistline is sagging big time with the addition of a 12-pound belt and 70K after his first round "Knockout of the Night" over Cain Velasquez.

Welcome to the mainstream, fellas.

Also hauling in a wheelbarrow full of cash is Ricardo Lamas, who impressed Facebook and FOXSports.com viewers with a sweet "Submission of the Night" winning arm triangle choke of Octagon debutant Cub Swanson. Look out, featherweights, here he comes.

Finally, Ben Henderson and Clay Guida took home "Fight of the Night" honors for their thrilling back-and-forth war of attrition that saw "Bendo" earn a lightweight championship bout against Frankie Edgar early next year thanks to a unanimous decision victory.

It's just too bad the folks on FOX didn't get to see it.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on FOX 1:

Knockout of the Night -- Junior dos Santos

Submission of the Night -- Ricardo Lamas

Fight of the Night -- Ben Henderson vs. Clay Guida

Again, each fighter received $65,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
