UFC 106 bonuses and awards for 'Ortiz vs Griffin 2' PPV fights

UFC 106: "Ortiz vs. Griffin 2" from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, has officially wrapped, which means that 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 $70,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to three out of the 20 fighters on the card. And one fighter, Josh Koscheck, left "Sin City" with a double dose of green ($140,000).

In addition to their base salaries, the UFC awarded co-main event participants Koscheck and Anthony Johnson "Fight of the Night" for their hard hitting, back-and-forth war that was short on rounds but long on excitement.

Not only did Koscheck pocket the win, the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) standout also scored "Submission of the Night" with his rear-naked choke over "Rumble" in the second frame.

Also bringing home the proverbial bacon was UFC newcomer Antonio Rogerio "Minotoro" Nogueira. "Lil' Nog"  made his Octagon debut a memorable one, out-dueling a very talented Luis Cane to grab "Knockout of the Night" after putting "Banha" on his butt in the first round.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 106:

Fight of the Night — Josh Koscheck vs. Anthony Johnson
Knockout of the Night — Antonio Rogerio Nogueira
Submission of the Night — Josh Kosckeck

Again, each fighter received $70,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
