Mo money, mo problems...

UFC Fight Night 35: "Rockhold vs. Philippou", from the Arena at Gwinnet Center in Duluth, Georgia, 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.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 24 fighters on the card. And it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.

The main card was filled with entertainment, including Luke Rockhold's liver kick TKO stoppage of Costa Philippou in the main event, which was good enough to earn "Knockout of the Night". Elsewhere, Cole Miller's rear-naked choke tap of Sam Sicilia earned him "Submission of the Night" while Yoel Romero's come-from-behind victory over Derek Brunson notched both men "Fight of the Night" honors.

Here are the special UFC Fight Night 35 bonuses:

Knockout of the Night -- Luke Rockhold

Submission of the Night -- Cole Miller

Fight of the Night -- Yoel Romero vs. Derek Brunson

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.
