Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

An exciting UFC Fight Night 87: "Overeem vs. Arlovsk"  event, emanating from Rotterdam, Netherlands today (Sun., May 8, 2016), is all wrapped up, which means it's now time to honor those who gave a little bit extra inside the Octagon.

Check out the full UFC Fight Night 87 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. There was no "Fight of the Night" bonus winner, with four fighters taking home "Performance of the Night" awards instead.

Among those who went home with an extra $50,000 check was Alistair Overeem, following his second-round knockout of Andrei Arlovski (see it again here).

Stefan Struve also walked away with a big bonus for his 16-second knockout over Antonio Silva (video replay here). rounding out the "Performance of the Night" award winners were Gunnar Nelson and Germaine de Randamie.

Here are the UFC Fight Night 86 bonuses:

Performance of the night: Alistair Overeem
Performance of the night: Stefan Struve
Performance of the night: Gunnar Nelson
Performance of the night: Germaine de Randamie

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as possible if that information is made available.
