An exciting UFC Fight Night 83 event, emanating from inside CONSOL Energy Center in Pittsburgh, Pa., last night (Sun., Feb. 21, 2016), is all wrapped up, which means it's now time to honor those who went above and beyond the call of duty in "Steel City."

Check out the full UFC Fight Night 83 results here.

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 Donald Cerrone, Chris Camozzi, Lauren Murphy and Kelly Faszholz.

"Cowboy" picked up a bonus check for his first-round submission victory (see it) over fellow "Cowboy," Alex Oliveira, in their "Steel City" main event.

Camozzi picked up his second win in-a-row (see it) over veteran Joe Riggs via several destructive knees in the clinch.

And last, but not least, Murphy put together an excellent striking attack to tame her very formidable foe, Faszholz, on the Fight Pass "Prelims" portion of the card.
