UFC on Versus 5: "Hardy vs. Lytle" from the Bradley Center in Milwaukee, Wisc., 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  three out of the 24 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "Brew City" with extra sacks of suds.

Chris Lytle, who announced his retirement from mixed martial arts (MMA) prior to his fight with Dan Hardy, took home not one, but two fight-night bonuses. As promised, he exchanged blows with "The Outlaw" for nearly full three rounds in an exciting back-and-forth "Fight of the Night" brawl, and he finished it late in the third round with a slick "Submission of the NIght" when Hardy went for a terrible takedown.

Not only did Lytle pocket an extra $130,00, but he also reportedly is riding off into the sunset on a brand new Harley Davidson motorcycle. Talk about a fitting way to go out for Lytle, who has earned a record 10 career bonuses since 2007.

Donald Cerrone, meanwhile, took home the "Knockout of the Night" for his first round destruction of Charles Oliveira in their lightweight showdown. "Cowboy" landed a big body shot that did "Do Bronx" dirty.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on Versus 5:

Knockout of the Night -- Donald Cerrone

Submission of the Night -- Chris Lytle

Fight of the Night -- Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle

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.
