UFC on Fox 8 bonuses and awards: Demetrious Johnson banks $50K for 'Submission of the Night'

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

The ZUFFA brass handed out its usual post-fight bonus awards to select fighters coming out of the UFC on Fox 8 event last night (Sat., July 27, 2013) in Seattle, Washington. Check out who took home the extra coin for their efforts.

UFC on Fox 8: "Johnson vs. Moraga" from the KeyArena in Seattle, Washington, 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 $50,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 22 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.

The "Submission of the Night" came courtesy of the main event of the evening, as Demetrious Johnson tapped John Moraga with an armbar with just over one minute remaining in the fight.

That's the latest finish in UFC history.

Elsewhere, Melvin Guillard earned "Knockout of the Night" for taking out Mac Danzig and the bangfest between Ed Herman and Trevor Smith was good enough to bring home "Fight of the Night" honors.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on Fox 8:

Knockout of the Night -- Melvin Guillard

Submission of the Night -- Demetrious Johnson

Fight of the Night -- Ed Herman vs. Trevor Smith

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as that information becomes available.
