Donald CerroneNate Diaz, Donald Cerrone, and Johny Hendricks each earned $75,000 bonuses for their performances at UFC 141 on Friday night in Las Vegas.

Diaz and Cerrone earned “Fight of the Night” honors for the three-round battle between the lightweight rivals that Diaz easily won by unanimous decision, while Hendricks scored UFC 141’s “Knockout of the Night” with a 12-second KO of welterweight contender Jon Fitch.

No “Submission of the Night” bonus was awarded as UFC 141 featured no submissions. All five UFC 141 prelims went to decision along with two fights on the main card, while the only other finishes were Alistair Overeem’s first-round TKO of Brock Lesnar in the UFC 141 main event and Alexander Gustafsson’s first-round TKO of Vladimir Matyushenko.

UFC 141 drew an attendance of 12,158 for a $3.1 million live gate at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
