UFC 136 bonuses and awards for 'Edgar vs Maynard 3' on Oct. 8 in Houston


UFC 136: "Edgar vs. Maynard 3" from the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, 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 $75,000 each.

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

Joe Lauzon not only crushed Melvin Guillard's title aspirations, he rear-naked choked his way to "Submission of the Night" and a big fat stack of cash from his overly impressed employers.

They aren't the only ones marveling at "J-Lau's" incredible performance.

Who else but Frankie Edgar would earn "Knockout of the Night" after he put an emphatic end to his feud with Gray Maynard by putting "The Bully's" lights out in the fourth round. This after taking another beating in the first round only to come storming back to find "The Answer" to finishing the job.

Turn the page, folks, this chapter is over.

Finally, Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan brought home "Fight of the Night" honors for their back-and-forth war of attrition that saw Phan finally earn his revenge in the rematch by bringing home a unanimous decision victory.

Turn the page on this one, too. Although a trilogy would likely be welcomed by many, no?

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 136:

Submission of the Night -- Joe Lauzon

Knockout of the Night -- Frankie Edgar

Fight of the Night -- Leonard Garcia vs. Nam Phan

Again, each fighter received $75,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
