Joe Lauzon is NOT the single leader of 'of the night' winners.

He's won nine officially announced 'of the night' titles, and two before they were officially announced, which brings his total up to 11. If no other fighter won awards before they were officially announced, then he would indeed be alone atop the mountain. However, not a single MMA news site has thought that perhaps other fighters have won bonuses before they began to be officially announced at UFC: Ortiz/Shamrock 3.

Over the last week, I've compiled the winners of every single officially announced UFC 'of the night' winners. After Saturday, when news outlets began reporting the two extra wins, I got out my UFC Encyclopedia (which has the 'of the night' winners from the ten or so events that weren't officially announced, but still counted towards the total) and added the new numbers in.

Unfortunately for Lauzon, he shares the top total of 11 with Anderson Silva.

Anderson Silva also won two unannounced but completely official 'of the night' bonuses before the switch over, and he would have won more had they started it just one event earlier (his Leben fight). Anderson won fight of the night at UFC 82, 101 and 117. He won KO of the Night at UFC 64, 73, 77, 101, 126 and 148 and he won Submission of the night at UFC 82 and 117, for a total of 11.

I love Lauzon, but it's still pretty annoying when a guy with a full time job and a girlfriend can do better research than most MMA news sites.

It's what I do to calm me down. Nothing like a bit of data entry.

LOL. She must really be a handful if that has to be mentioned.

Anyway, thanks for compiling the list. Care to share the whole thing?

I spend a lot of my time with her lol. She keeps me busy.

I'm actually in talks with the guy who runs FightMatrix about it getting published over there. I'll post some snippets if anyone is interested?

nice job fact-checking that, man!

Sometimes news orgs get caught with their pants down... And this is one of those time. Usually not industry-wide though haha.

If a blue namer could post this...this is the general. Every column can be filtered, so you can easily see who has more of each specific award. Also, you can see how much each fighter has earnt (in thousands) on the far right.

you guys think I have too much free time?

but I doubt anyone will get both FON and another bonus for the same fight. I don't think that has happened before. I'd check but first I have to go to my job, and then I have to have sex with my girlfriend.....OP can you check for me?

 Lauzon fights more on average than Silva so I fully expect him to have the "Of The Night" title by the end of the year. At that point, Nate Diaz is the only person I see catching up and potentially surpassing Joe.

I don't use the UG religiously unfortunately. I can't justify it in my eyes, especially not when I'm paying for a trip to Europe lol

So you have a problem with the UFC only official recognizing "of the night" bonuses starting at a certain date?

Follow me, on Twitter
 The nine figure came from UFC.com currently. Dunno which they made officially official, and which are officially unofficial, or if it is just a clerical entry. But prior to Sat UFC.com listed 9. Add two, you get 11. And that is currently the best.
