When the UFC returned to Montreal for UFC 154 on Saturday night, the crowd surrounding the Octagon was electric. Almost as electric as the action taking place inside.

Bonuses for the event, worth $70,000 each, were given out in the standard categories. Let's take a look at our winners.


Fight of the Night: Georges St-Pierre vs. Carlos Condit

There were only two major candidates for the night's top prize. When it came down to either GSP vs. Condit or an exciting featherweight contest between Mark Hominick and Pablo Garza, the championship main event had to get the nod.

The most exciting moment of the fight certainly was the head-kick landed by Carlos Condit that had fans nationwide jumping out of their chairs. However, the true electricity felt was surrounding the return of champion GSP, and that alone added tremendous emotional attachment to this fight.


Submission of the Night: Ivan Menjivar

The Facebook preliminaries housed some great action, including the submission of the night performance from veteran Ivan Menjivar.

With the larger and more powerful Azamat Gashimov in top position, Menjivar quickly grabbed a hold of his opponents leg for control before snatching up a beautiful armbar.


Knockout of the Night: Johny Hendricks

Regardless of whether or not Johny Hendricks scored the only knockout on the entire card, this fight would have likely taken home top honors.

Needing only 46 seconds to obliterate Martin Kampmann, Hendricks now owns knockout wins over two top-five welterweights. He put an exclamation point on his request for a title shot against GSP with an enormous left hand that had "The Hitman" out cold before his body hit the canvas.
