UFC on Fox 1 Results: Junior Dos Santos Gets $65K Knockout Bonus; Henderson, Guida Get Fight Of The Night

There were most certainly fireworks on display for the UFC's network debut: UFC on Fox 1: Velasquez vs. Dos Santos. There was an excellent undercard (watchable on and at the time) in which the number one contender for the lightweight belt was determined and the one-fight main card most certainly delivered as advertised. Cain Velasquez succumbed to strikes when Junior Dos Santos hit him with a big overhand right and swarmed him, getting the stoppage at 1:04 in the very first round and winning the UFC Heavyweight Championship.

As usual, the UFC held a post-event press conference and announced various bonuses, namely the fight of the night bonus, which come with a nice, fat paycheck. There were definitely some good contenders for fight of the night, as the undercard was really packed with high-paced action. The winners of SOTN and KOTN received $60K, while both fighters in the FOTN received that bonus each.
