UFC 181: "Hendricks vs. Lawler 2" from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada 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, Anthony Pettis and Josh Samman earned "Performance of the Night" bonuses for their submission and knockout victories over Gilbert Melendez and Eddie Gordon, respectively.

"Fight of the Night" was awarded to the thrilling back-and-forth battle between Sergio Pettis and Matt Hobar that saw the former earn a unanimous decision victory over the latter.

Here are the special UFC 181 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Anthony Pettis

Performance of the Night -- Josh Samman

Fight of the Night -- Sergio Pettis vs. Matt Hobar

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.
