UFC 116 by the numbers

UFC 116 is officially in the books and I don't think the UFC brass led by President Dana White could be any happier with the outcome of this one.

Spectacular fights and a tremendous amount of heart shown by the fighters across the board.

And they were rewarded for those performances in a grand fashion to the tune of $75,000 each.

White and company shelled out two Fight of the Night bonuses as well as a Knockout of the Night and Submission of the Night bonus.

The Fight of the Night winners were Stephan Bonnar and Krzysztof Soszynski and Chris Leben and Yoshihiro Akiyama. Meanwhile Brock Lesnar took home the Submission of the Night bonus for his improbable arm-triangle choke on Carwin. Gerald Harris took home the Knockout of the Night bonus with his slam of Dave Branch that left him unconscious on the canvas.
