UFC 89: "Bisping vs. Leben" from The National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, England, on October 18 has come to a close.
The highly anticipated main event of the evening between Michael Bisping and Chris Leben had its fair share action, but it was not awarded the "Fight of the Night" by promotion officials when all was said and done.
That honor went to welterweights Chris Lytle and Paul Taylor for their rock-em, sock-em three-round brawl, which "Lights Out" took in the end via unanimous decision.
Another 170-pound match up that didn't make the televised Spike TV broadcast between Dan Hardy and Akihiro Gono had to come in a close second.
Overall, it was a solid card that produced several exciting fights -- the fighters honored below more than deserved a little extra cold hard cash for their outstanding performances.
Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 89:
Knockout of the Night -- Luis Cane
Submission of the Night -- Jim Miller
Fight of the Night -- Chris Lytle vs. Paul Taylor
Each fighter received $40,000 for their efforts in addition to their respective base salaries, which will more than likely not be made available because the event took place overseas.
