A thoroughly entertaining UFC Fight Night 81 mixed martial arts (MMA) event, emanating from inside TD Garden in Boston, Mass., last night (Sun., Jan. 17, 2016) is in the books, which means that it's time to honor those who went above and beyond the call of duty in the Octagon.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) doled out its customary post-fight performance bonuses to four of the 26 fighters on the evening's card. Among those who went home with an extra $50,000 check were T.J. Dillashaw, Dominick Cruz, Ed Herman and Luke Sanders.

Cruz put on a movement clinic against former champion, Dillashaw, scoring multiple takedowns and damaging kicks to reclaim the Bantamweight belt he never lost.
