An entertaining Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) 190 pay-per-view (PPV) event brought fireworks (full results here) to the Brazilian crowd inside HSBC Arena last night (Sat. Aug. 1, 2015) and now is the time to honor those fighters who gave that little bit extra toward achieving a "W" in the Octagon.

UFC doled out its customary post-fight monetary bonuses to four of the 26 fighters on the card. Among the men and women who picked up the extra $50,000 were reigning women's Bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey and Demian Maia.

"Rowdy" put forth a blistering effort standing, torching her would-be challenger Bethe Correia 34 seconds into the fight, with an assortment of uppercuts and hooks to notch her sixth consecutive title defense.

The co-main event, which was a rematch of a scintillating Pride FC rematch between Shogun Rua and Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, delivered as the pair of veteran mixed martial artists cranked out kicks, hooks and everything in between.

In the night's FOX Sports 1 "Prelims" featured tilt, former UFC Middleweight title challenger Demian Maia turned away upstart 170-pound contender Neil Magny with a ferocious grappling clinic, which saw the former secure the rear-naked choke finish in round two.

All in all, it was a noteworthy night of fights that featured both fighters turning back the clock and those who are still cementing their legacy in the sport of mixed martial arts (MMA).

Here are the special UFC 190 bonuses:

Fight of the Night -- Shogun Rua vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira

Performance of the Night -- Ronda Rousey

Performance of the Night -- Demian Maia

Additionally, UFC president Dana White told media at the post-fight press conference (watch the replay here) that he would "take care" of Patrick Cummins and Claudia Gadelha for their dominant victories over Rafael Cavalcante and Jessica Aguilar, respectively.

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which the Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) more than likely will not disclose.
