UFC on FX 8 – Belfort, Souza, Martins and Larsen Each Pick Up $50,000 Bonuses

The UFC handed out their customary $50,000 post-fight performance related bonus awards following last night’s UFC on FX 8: Belfort vs. Rockhold event in Santa Catarina, Brazil, with two high profile fighters leading the way to the rest.

Main event knockout artist, Vitor Belfort picked up a spectacular spinning heel kick knockout win over Luke Rockhold and with it the “Knockout of the Night” bonus. The “Submission of the Night” went to former Strikeforce champion, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza for his arm-triangle choke victory over Chris Camozzi in the co-main event of the evening.

The “Fight of the Night” bonus went to the opening duo of the evening as lightweights Lucas Martins and Jeremy Larsen battled it out for almost fifteen minutes only for Martins to emerge with a late TKO victory.
