UFC On FOX 3: Fight Of The Night Bonuses From Diaz Vs. Miller

UFC on FOX 3 on Saturday night featured a thrilling card of fights, culminating in four great bouts on prime time network television.

At the post-event press conference, UFC president Dana White announced which fighters would be taking home the bonuses for the various superlatives of the evening. All winners received a $65,000 bonus check in addition to their regular winnings.

The knockout of the night went to Lavar Johnson, who whooped up on professional tomato can Pat Barry in the first round of their heavyweight fight and won via TKO from punches. The opponent was less than elite, but Johnson looked impressive nonetheless.

Submission of the night went to Nate Diaz, who wrapped up Jim Miller in an impressive-looking power guillotine. The setup and the move were picture-perfect examples of just how talented Diaz is and on a card full of submissions, this one stood out.

Fight of the night went to Louis Gaudinot and John Lineker, a frantic catchweight fight at 127 pounds that ended with a Gaudinot choke in the second round.
