No Fight of the Night bonus was awarded for Saturday's UFC 146: Dos Santos vs. Mir fight card, but not for a lack of action. Instead, the UFC handed out four fight night bonuses -- two Knockout of the Nights and two Submission of the Nights.
Saturday's awards were in the amount of $70,000 each.
The two Submission of the Night awards were earned by Paul Sass and Stefan Struve. Sass picked up his ninth win by triangle when he submitted Jacob Volkmann in the first round of their preliminary match up. Struve took home his fat bonus check for dispatching of a hard-charging Lavar Johnson with a first-round armbar in the first main card fight of the evening.
Dan Hardy and Roy "Big Country" Nelson won the two Knockout of the Night awards for their respective performances. Hardy came back from a four-fight losing streak with a first-round finish over Duane Ludwig, dropping the veteran with a picture-perfect left hook. Nelson bested Dave Herman on the main card, sitting his opponent down with a hard overhand right early in the first round.
