After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Nick Diaz (Pictured), BJ Penn, Donald Cerrone and Bart Palaszewski each an additional $75,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 137: Penn vs. Diaz.”

As expected, the card’s main eventers earned “Fight of the Night” honors for their thrilling 15-minute affair. Diaz not only earned a win in his highly-anticipated return to the Octagon, but may have retired Penn in the process.

Cerrone posted the evening’s only tapout victory, thus he took home “Submission of the Night.”

Palaszewski earned his “Knockout of the Night” bonus by quickly disposing of Tyson Griffin in the 1stRound.

“UFC 137: Penn vs. Diaz” took place inside the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Fight of the Night:

BJ Penn vs. Nick Diaz ($75,000/each)

Submission of the Night:

Donald Cerrone ($75,000)

Knockout of the Night:

Bart Palaszewski ($75,000)
