UFC on FOX 2 bonuses and awards for 'Evans vs Davis' in Chicago

UFC on FOX 2: "Evans vs. Davis" from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois, 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 $65,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 20 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's leaving "Windy City" with a second sack of simoleons.

If you only watched the FOX portion of the card, you're probably going to have no frigging clue who these folks are. I guess it's my job to tell you, though, so let's get down to it.

"Knockout of the Night" honors went to Strikeforce import Lavar Johnson, who made his way over from the now deceased San Jose heavyweight wastelands to send Joey Beltran to the same place with some vicious uppercuts. It was the first time in his UFC career "The Mexicutioner" had been put to sleep.

Hence the cool $65 grand.

There was little doubt that Charles Oliveira would take home "Submission of the Night" honors after he pulled off a calf slicer on Eric Wisely. After some initial confusion, it was confirmed by UFC officials that this was indeed the first time a submission of this kind of executed inside the Octagon.

Finally, Evan Dunham and Nik Lentz were awarded "Fight of the Night" honors for their thrilling, back-and-forth war of attrition that saw Dunham open up a cut under Lentz's eye significant enough to force a doctor stoppage. It was bad, too, folks. Like Dunham created a second mouth on "The Carny's" face.

Not pretty.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC on FOX 2:

Knockout of the Night -- Lavar Johnson

Submission of the Night -- Charles Oliveira

Fight of the Night -- Evan Dunham vs. Nik Lentz

Again, each fighter received $65,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible.
