The UFC handed out their customary post-fight performance related bonus awards after last nights UFC Fight Night 51: Silva vs. Arlovski II event in Brazil, leaving four fighters walking away with an extra $50,000.

During the main event of the night Andrei Arlovski pulled out a stunning win over Antonio Silva. Godofredo Pepey seemed like he could potentially in trouble against Dashon Johnson but Pepey jumped back with a triangle choke, which he transitioned into armbar, rolled it over and Johnson quickly had to tap.

In the co-feature, Gleison Tibau and Piotr Hallmann had a close fight against Tibau but it took a close split decision to call the fight. The pair picked up “Fight of the Night” as a result.
