A captivating three-day lineup of mixed martial arts (MMA) action is now in the history books following an explosive UFC 194 pay-per-view (PPV) blockbuster last night (Sat., Dec. 12, 2015), and now it's time to honor those fighters who went above and beyond the call of duty inside MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Check out the full UFC 194 results here.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) doled out its customary post-fight performance bonuses to four of the 24 combatants on the evening's card. Among those who went home with an extra $50,000 check are Conor McGregor, Luke Rockhold and Chris Weidman.

McGregor demolished Jose Aldo with a straight left (highlights) to earn the undisputed 145-pound belt via knockout just 13 seconds into their main event.

Rockhold proved to be a far superior foe than Weidman might've been expecting, as the American Kickboxing Academy (AKA) product smashed the latter on the ground (highlights) with vicious elbows to earn the Middleweight strap.

Lastly, Leonardo Santos starched Kevin Lee (highlights) with a right hand to stop the heralded Lightweight prospect in round one.

Here are UFC 194 post-fight bonuses:

Fight of the Night --- Chris Weidman vs. Luke Rockhold

Performance of the Night --- Conor McGregor

Performance of the Night --- Leonardo Santos

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which the Nevada State Athletic Commission (ASC) will more than likely disclose later in the week.
