The Knockout of the Night bonus couldn’t have been any clearer. After nearly getting finished in the first round, The Ultimate Fighter Season 12 runner-up Michael Johnson stormed out of the gate in round two, knocking Danny Castillo unconscious.  Johnson notched his third consecutive victory and pocketed an extra $40,000 for his performance.

Justin Edwards also made it a fairly easy pick for Submission of the Night. As Josh Neer tried for a takedown early in their fight, Edwards locked on an arm-in guillotine choke, quickly locked it up, and put Neer to sleep.

Diego Nunes, finding a new fire in his belly, and Bart Palaszewski fought tooth and nail in the second preliminary bout of the night. They lit a fire under the Minneapolis crowd and were rewarded by UFC officials with the Fight of the Night. Palaszewski landed on the losing end of the decision, but both took home a bonus check.

This! He hasn't finished an opponent in a long time and now just gets an awesome comeback KO and still doesn't get it. What's he have to do?

Pierce and Johnson both had similar situations. I think both deserved OTN bonuses. Why Dana chose Johnson over Pierce is anyone's guess, but both guys had to overcome adversity in the 1st round and ended up getting KO's in devastating fashion in the 2nd round.

I'm just guessing, but maybe Johnson got the bonus because he's on a win a streak and KO'd a guy that was a favorite to win. I could be wrong...
