UFC 197 bonuses: Demetrious 'Mighty Mouse' Johnson and more earn a little extra cash

Joshua Dahl-USA TODAY Sports

The action was non stop last night at UFC 197 live from the MGM Grand Garden arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While the return of Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Light Heavyweight dynamo Jon Jones certainly commanded much of the spotlight, the rest of the card ultimately delivered. From Demetrious Johnson shutting down Henry Cejudo to Yair Rodriguez knocking Andre Fili out via flying head kick, UFC 197 delivered on all cylinders.

Of course, Jones' five-round decision victory over a very game Ovince Saint Preux also garnered some attention last night.

Here are the UFC 197 bonuses:

Fight of the Night -- Danny Roberts vs Dominique Steele

Performance of the Night -- Demetrious Johnson

Performance of the Night -- Yair Rodriguez

Johnson's performance was especially impressive considering he beat an undefeated Olympic gold medalist who looked every part of top contender coming into the fight. In addition, Rodriguez has earned serious praise in the Featherweight division on the heels of another sensational striking performance.
