UFC on FX5 Bonus Awards


Michael Johnson, Justin Edwards, Diego Nunes and Bart Palaszewski were the bonus winners at UFC on FX 5: Browne vs. Bigfoot.

They took him cheques for $40,000 for their standout efforts on the cards, in addition to their contracted purses and any other win bonuses.

Knockout of the Night went to Johnson after a comeback win over Danny Castillo. Johnson was on the losing side in the first but surged back in the second and was able to land a hard left hand that dropped Castillo and finished the fight.

Submission of the Night went to Justin Edwards, who scored a super-fast win over the veteran Josh Neer. When Neer shot in, Edwards locked up a guillotine and Neer was quickly forced to tap, ending the match at 0:45 of round one.

Fight of the Night went to Nunes and Palaszewski for a three round battle that largely went Nunes’ way. Palaszewski had his moments, and certainly wasn’t going to make it easy for the WEC vet, but the fight ended with a unanimous decision win for Nunes.
