Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was rockin' in the desert when UFC 191 took Las Vegas, Nevada, by storm last night (Sat., Sept. 5, 2015) inside MGM Grand Garden Arena (full results here).

Customary post-fight bonuses were doled out by UFC to four of the 22 fighters on the pay-per-view (PPV) card. Among the men and women capturing bonuses were Anthony Johnson, John Lineker, Francisco Rivera and Raquel Pennington.

"Rumble" annihilated Jimi Manuwa in a 205-pound contest, showcasing his evolving ground game and trademark right haymaker to stun "Poster Boy" in the second round via technical knockout.

John Lineker engaged in an all-out brawl that lasted all but two minutes against veteran Francisco Rivera, submitting "Cisco" via guillotine choke.

Raquel Pennington avenged a previous loss to dangerous Brazilian Jessica Andrade on the preliminary portion of the UFC 191 card, conquering her via a second-round rear-naked choke.

All in all, not a bad night to take in some mixed martial arts (MMA) action.

Here are the special UFC 191 bonuses:

Fight of the Night --- John Lineker vs. Francisco Rivera

Performance of the Night --- Anthony Johnson

Performance of the Night --- Raquel Pennington

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