The dust has barely settled on UFC Fight Night 59: "McGregor vs. Siver" from TD Garden in Boston, Mass., which means it's time to honor those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights last night (Jan. 18, 2015).

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 24 fighters on the card, and it's probably no surprise who is heading home with a little extra grease for their efforts.

This time around, Conor McGregor earned "Performance of the Night" for his sensational stoppage of Dennis Siver in the main event (watch it here), while Lorenz Larkin earned the same in his impressive Welterweight debut, which resulted in a first round knockout of John Howard.

"Fight of the Night" was awarded to the thrilling back-and-forth "Prelims" battle between Sean O'Connell and Matt Van Buren, which saw O'Connell earn a technical knockout in the third and final frame.

Here are the special UFC Fight Night 59 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Conor McGregor

Performance of the Night -- Lorenz Larkin

Fight of the Night -- Sean O'Connell vs. Matt Van Buren

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 possible if that information is made available.
