UFC 136 is in the history books, and four fighters got rewarded with $75,000 for their performances Saturday night.
Leonard Garcia and Nam Phan both pocketed an extra $75k for Fight of the Night. They went to war for 15 minutes, with Phan getting the better of Garcia for the first 10 of those minutes. Then in the last round, Garcia had Phan hurt badly, but could not close the deal. Phan would go on to win a unanimous decision.
Submission of the night went to Joe Lauzon for his rear naked choke victory over Melvin Guillard. After dropping Guillard with a left hook, Lauzon pounced, secured Guillard's back, and secured the submission just 47 seconds in to the fight.
Knockout of the night went to Frankie Edgar for his unbelievable stoppage of Gray Maynard in the fourth round of their title fight. After once again surviving a first round beating, Edgar took control of the fight in the second round.
Then in the fourth round, Edgar connected with an uppercut that badly hurt Maynard. Edgar followed up with more punches until the referee stepped in to stop the bout.
