Watch the incredible video highlights from UFC 196 last night!

An exciting UFC 196 event, emanating from inside MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, last night (Sat., March 5, 2016), is all wrapped up, which means it's now time to honor those who went above and beyond the call of duty inside the Octagon.

Check out the full UFC 196 results here.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) doled out its customary post-fight performance bonuses to three of the 24 fighters on the evening's card. Among those who went home with an extra $50,000 check were Nate Diaz, Conor McGregor and Miesha Tate.

A bloodied Stockton slugger overcame McGregor's powerful punches to take down and submit "Notorious" in round two (see it) of their main event clash.

"Cupcake" was anything but sweet in her come-from-behind submission victory (see it) over now ex-champion Holly Holm.
