B.J. Penn, Phil Davis, George Sotiropoulos and Joe Lauzon each earned $80,000 "Fight Night" bonuses for their performances at Saturday's "UFC 123: Rampage vs. Machida" event.

Penn earned the night's "Knockout of the Night" award, Davis picked up the "Submission of the Night" bonus, and Sotiropoulos and Lauzon shared "Fight of the Night" honors.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the bonus winners and award amounts while at UFC 123's post-event press conference.

UFC 123 took place at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Auburn Hills, Mich. The night's main card aired on pay-per-view, while Spike TV featured a pair of preliminary card contests.

 80K def helps to soothe the loss, IMO.  Joe's always in exciting fights.

I got goosebumps over that KO by BJ. It was shades of Caol Uno, even with the running out of the cage too.

Congrats to Joe for pocketing 80k as well. He always brings it, though I wish he would pace himself a bit better in his fights. Still, always a fan of his fights.

^ Lytle I think.

And I agree, no way Joe should get 80k after gassing 3 minutes in, Dana should have just handed out two Sub of the nights.

 Good for Joe, a fun fight to watch.

Personally, I thought that the Simpson/Munoz and Brown/Foster fights were both exciting and FOTN caliber, but don't see a problem with Joe/George getting it since it was such action packed....

I am a fan of seeing decisions get the FOTN for some reason, I think to really reward both guys for showing up and putting it out there (I realize neither Brown/Foster or Lauzon/Sots were decisions).

"That was not the fight of the night"

It's weird that you guys keep saying this...no matter how many times I read the link, or what websites I check, they all say Jlau and Sots were FOTN and got an extra 80k.
