Mo money, mo problems ...

The dust has barely settled on UFC 182: "Jones vs. Cormier" from MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, which means it's time to honor those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights last night (Jan. 3, 2015).

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 is heading home with a little extra grease for their efforts.

This time around, Paul Felder earned a "Performance of the Night" for his awesome knockout of Danny Castillo (watch it here), while Shawn Jordan earned the same for his rude welcome of Heavyweight debutant, Jared Cannonier.

"Fight of the Night" was awarded to the thrilling back-and-forth "bad blood" battle between Jon Jones and Daniel Cormier, which saw "Bones" earn an emotional, hard-fought unanimous decision over "DC" (watch video highlights here).

Here are the special UFC 182 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Paul Felder

Performance of the Night -- Shawn Jordan

Fight of the Night -- Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier

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 Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) makes that information available later this week.
