After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Joe Lauzon (Pictured), Jim Miller, John Moraga and Todd Duffee each an additional $65,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 155.” Moraga kicked the card off in style by rallying to slap on a guillotine choke on Chris Cariaso. The tapout not only earned Moraga a 2-0 mark in the Octagon, but also ‘Submission of the Night’ honors. Lauzon survived a mauling from Miller in the opening round to put on the most thrilling affair of the evening. The lightweights earned ‘Fight of the Night’ for their showing. Duffee ended his two-year Octagon hiatus in spectacular fashion by steamrolling Phil DeFries with a vicious barrage of strikes. The assault scored him ‘Knockout of the Night.’ UFC 154 took place inside MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fight of the Night: Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller ($65,000/each) Submission of the Night: John Moraga ($65,000) Knockout of the Night: Todd Duffee ($65,000)
