After an interesting night of action at UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot, the bonuses have been handed out and there aren’t any big surprises.
The Knockout of the Night bonus was awarded to Michael Johnson for his great comeback KO of Danny Castillo. Castillo rocked Johnson badly in the first round of their fight, but Johnson survived to the second where he was able to score a thudding KO of Castillo that started with a short left hook in the second.
Submission of the Night went to Justin Edwards. Edwards caught Josh Neer in a standing guillotine choke early in the first round, pulling guard with the choke. Neer’s lights were quickly turned out because of the choke and the referee had to make the save.
Finally, Fight of the Night went to Diego Nunes and Bart Palaszewski. This probably could have gone to Johnson/Castillo as well, given that that fight was actually a back and forth fight. Instead it went to Nunes and Palaszewski in what was a pretty one-sided fight for Nunes.
All involved fighters took $40,000 for their efforts.
