UFC Diego Nunes

After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Diego Nunes (Pictured), Bart Palaszewski, Michael Johnson and Justin Edwards each an additional $40,000 for their special performances Friday night at “UFC on FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot.”

Nunes and Palaszewski took home ‘Fight of the Night’ honors for their back-and-forth featherweight affair. Nunes ultimately took home a unanimous decision victory, as well as the extra $40k.

Johnson was knocked down early, but rallied to put Danny Castillo to sleep in the 2ndRound. His performance was good enough to win ‘Knockout of the Night.’

Edwards served up an upset special to choke Josh Neer unconscious with a guillotine.

UFC on FX 5 took place inside Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Fight of the Night:

Diego Nunes and Bart Palaszewski ($40,000/each)

Submission of the Night:

Justin Edwards ($40,000)

Knockout of the Night:

Michael Johnson ($40,000)
