Mo money, mo problems ...

The dust has barely settled on UFC 184: "Rousey vs. Zingano" from Los Angeles, Calif., which means it's time to honor those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights last night (Feb. 28, 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 from "City of Angels" with a little extra grease for their efforts.

This time around, unsurprisingly, Ronda Rousey earned a "Performance of the Night" for her 14-second submission of Cat Zingano in the main event (read recap here), an easy choice for the promotion's most bankable superstar.

Once again, there was no "Fight of the Night."

Instead, the promotion rewarded Jake Ellenberger and Tony Ferguson for their respective (and impressive) finishes of Josh Koscheck and Gleison Tibau, as well as Tim Means, who did Dhiego Lima "dirty" on the "Prelims" under card (read full recap here).

Here are the special UFC 184 bonuses:

Performance of the Night -- Ronda Rousey
Performance of the Night -- Jake Ellenberger
Performance of the Night -- Tony Ferguson
Performance of the Night -- Tim Means

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 California State Athletic Commission (CSAC) makes that information available later this week.
