UFC 84 bonuses and awards for 'Ill Will' fights

ufc 84 bonus
UFC 84: "Ill Will" is in the books, raking in $3.7 million at the MGM Grand Garden Arena gate in Las Vegas, Nevada, on May 24, thanks to a reported 14,774 fans filling the venue.

Some of that cash was used to reward several fighters with $75,000 each for their impressive performances inside the Octagon.

Here are the "Ill Will" post-fight bonuses:

Fight of the Night -- Goran Reljic and Wilson Gouveia, which Reljic won with a come-from-behind knockout in round two.

Knockout of the Night -- Wanderlei Silva. Was there any doubt about this one? He came out guns blazing and floored a very tough (and much bigger) Keith Jardine just 36 seconds into round one. "The Axe Murderer" is back.

Submission of the Night -- Rousimar Palhares got the nod with a picture perfect submission (armbar) over a very crafty and experienced opponent, Ivan Salaverry. Not too shabby for the Octagon newcomer. will pass along the fighter salaries as soon as the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) makes them available.
