Mo money, mo problems...

UFC Fight Night 55: "Rockhold vs. Bisping" from the Allphones Arena in Sydney, Australia 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.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 22 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who's heading home with a second sack of simoleons.

This time around, Luke Rockhold and Louis Smolka were awarded "Performance of the Night" bonuses for their submission and knockout victories over Michael Bisping and Richie Vaculik, respectively.

The "Fight of the Night" award went to the thrilling back-and-forth war of attrition that saw Robert Whittaker score a TKO finish of Clint Hester in the second round of their main card contest.

Here are the special UFC Fight Night 55 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Luke Rockhold

Performance of the Night -- Louis Smolka

Fight of the Night -- Robert Whittaker vs. Clint Hester

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as that information becomes available.
