UFC 167 featured everything fight fans crave. 

Vicious knockouts, a slick submission and several back-and-forth, closely contested affairs were represented on this fight card, leaving the UFC brass with a difficult decision when doling out the post-fight bonuses. 

Let's get the easy one out of the way first. 


Submission of the Night

As the only victor via submission on the card, Donald Cerrone took home Submission of the Night honors for his beautiful second-round triangle choke over Evan Dunham. 

The submission marked the first time Dunham had been forced to tap in professional action, making the feat all the more impressive for the "Cowboy." 


Knockout of the Night

Tyron Woodley blasted Josh Koscheck in main card action, and he will take home an extra $50,000 for his efforts. 

Lasting less than one round, this was a quick and vicious showing from Woodley—a perfect candidate for Knockout of the Night.

Fight of the Night

The UFC 167 fight card hosted a few battles worthy of this distinction, but only one rewarded its combatants with a cool 50-grand apiece. 

That honor went to the night's main event between welterweight kingpin Georges St-Pierre and challenger Johny Hendricks. 

For five rounds, these 170-pound standouts stood and traded blows and takedowns, with GSP eventually earning a controversial split decision. 

The bonus will help assuage Hendricks' pain a bit for now, but there is no question that "Bigg Rigg" will want another shot at the title as soon as possible.
