After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded three fighters some extra cash for their special performances at “UFC 150: Henderson vs. Edgar II.”

Donald Cerrone (Pictured) double dipped by taking home ‘Fight of the Night’ for his back-and-forth battle against Melvin Guillard, and ‘Knockout of the Night’ for putting his buddy to sleep in the show’s co-featured attraction.

Cerrone left Denver with $120,000 for his efforts.

The night wasn’t a complete loss for Guillard, he also scored $60k for his part in FOTN.

Dennis Bermudez posted the only tap out of the evening, so he was a no brainer to score ‘Submission of the Night’ honors. He slapped on a guillotine choke on Tom Hayden to earn his bonus check.

UFC 150 took place inside Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado.

Fight of the Night:

Donald Cerrone and Melvin Guillard ($60,000/each)

Submission of the Night:

Dennis Bermudez ($60,000)

Knockout of the Night:

Donald Cerrone ($60,000)
