UFC 152 Results: Recapping the Fight Night Bonuses
It seemed like another UFC event would never get here, then just like that, it's over. UFC 152 is in the books, and what a card it was.
The preliminary bouts saw a handful of finishes while the main card saw a nice collection of great fights, including the crowning of a new champion as well as quite possibly the best fighter in the UFC retaining his gold.
With that said, let's take a look at the UFC 152 fight night bonuses awarded by UFC President Dana White following the event.
Knockout of the Night
Knockout of the Night went to Cub Swanson for his exciting finish of Charles Oliveira in the first round in the opening fight on the Pay-Per-View card.
Swanson landed a huge body shot followed by an overhand that dropped Oliveira. Swanson walked towards Oliveira, but he knew it was over.
This is Swanson's second straight KOTN bonus, and he will take home a nice $65K for his efforts.
Submission of the Night
Submission of the Night went to Light Heavyweight Champion Jon Jones in his fourth-round submission victory over Vitor Belfort.
Although both Joe Rogan and Mike Goldberg referred to the submission as a kimura, Jones actually finished Belfort with an Americana, as said by Bruce Buffer.
His main competition for SOTN was Vinny Magalhaes, who defeated Igor Pokrajac by second-round armbar.
This is Jon Jones' second SOTN award.
Fight of the Night
Fight of the Night went to the war that was the preliminary bout between Evan Dunham and T.J. Grant.
Their fight was scheduled to be featured on the Pay Per View until the UFC 151 cancellation brought Jon Jones vs. Vitor Belfort to the card. That meant that the Dunham-Grant fight was pushed down to the FX prelims, which highly upset both Dunham and Grant.
So, to show their disapproval, both men went out and put on the best fight of the night that left Dunham a bloody mess and Grant looking like a top contender in the 155 division.
