After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Terry Etem and Rousimar Palhares each an additional $65,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 142: Aldo vs. Mendes.” Edson Barboza (Pictured) took home two bonuses.

Barboza started off 2012 is spectacular fashion by providing the UFC with a highlight reel clip they’ll be able to use for countless promos and shows for years to come. The Brazilian unleashed a vicious spinning wheel kick on Terry Etim to earn “Knockout of the Night.”

The news isn’t all bad for Etim, as he and Barboza each pocketed $65k for ‘Fight of the Night.’

Palhares made quick work of Mike Massenzio by locking in a heel hook in the 1stRound of their middleweight tussle.

UFC 142 took place inside HSBC Arena in Rio de Jenairo, Brazil.

Fight of the Night:

Edson Barboza and Terry Etem ($65,000/each)

Submission of the Night:

Rousimar Palhares ($65,000)

Knockout of the Night:

Edson Barboza ($65,000)
