UFC President Dana White awarded several fighters with bonuses during the UFC Fight Night 17 post-fight press conference.  As always, an extra check was given out to fighters with the best performances of the night.  Each of the bonus winners received an additional $30,000 USD aside from their individual fighter payroll which should be released later this week.

Here are your UFN 17 bonus winners:

  • "Knockout of the Night": awarded to Cain Velasquez who defeated Denis Stojnic in the second round.
  • "Submission of the Night": awarded to Joe Lauzon who submitted Jeremy Stephens via an armbar in the second round.
  • "Fight of the Night": awarded to both Josh Neer and Mac Danzig for their action-packed bout.  Neer submitted Danzig via a triangle choke in the second round.
