UFC 200 finally unfolded last night (Sat., July 9, 2016) live on pay-per-view (PPV) from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. So much transpired on a card widely considered the greatest of all time. With Anderson Silva stepping in on short notice, Brock Lesnar returning to the Octagon for the first time in nearly five years (watch highlights), women's Bantamweight champion Miesha Tate defending her title for the first time (and failing) and Jose Aldo looking to get back into the win column to secure a rematch with Conor McGregor, UFC 200 offered a lot of memorable mixed martial arts (MMA) action.

But, only a few fighters stood out enough to earn a little extra cash ($50,000 to be exact) on the biggest weekend in the history of the world's leading MMA promotion.

Check out the official UFC 200 bonus winners below:

Performance of the Night -- Joe Lauzon

Performance of the Night -- Gegard Mousasi

Performance of the Night -- Amanda Nunes

Performance of the Night -- Cain Velasquez

Again, each fighter received $50,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) will disclose early next week.
