Tonight at the UFC 153 post-fight press conference, Dana White announced the event's bonuses:

Submission of the Night: Antonio Nogueira

Fight of the Night: Jon Fitch vs. Erick Silva

Knockout of the Night: Rony Jason

The UFC President also laughed when saying the bonuses were $70,000 after being talked up by Stephan Bonnar.

good for Fitch. Hearing him talk about how much he needed money for him and his family, it was nice to see. And he deserved it with that performance.

I am kind of glad that Anderson didn't get KO of the night not that he doesn't deserve it. But because Rony Jason definitely needs that 70k more than Anderson.

I thought Phil had the nicer sub, but I'm sure he was given something also. Phone Post

I'm completely devastated Erick lost, but well earned by Fitch. Outstanding performance, that fight will make Erick Silva better in the long run Phone Post

I agree that Anderson Silva doesn't need that cash, but he deserves KotN. Teixeira/Maldonado should have won FotN. Maia should have won SotN.

I'd like to hear that everybody took home some fat "backroom bonuses" because every fighter brought it HARD. Exceptional night of fights.

A one sided mauling is not better than the back and forth fight with Fitch. Phone Post

fucking awesome fights!  only blemish was anderson treating bonnar like he was a pathetic joke rather than an ambassador that paved the way for his monster paychecks.  yes anderson, we know you're supposed to dominate vs bonnar, quit acting like you're about to rape the world with zenlike prowess

Are u fuckin blind or blonde? In what fuckin weird ass world would a lopsided beat down w/ Teixeira vs Maldonado = fotn?????????? That is the most insane thing I heard all night and I heard some insane shit lol......don't mean to go off on u but c'mon, a fotn means a fight that went back and forth and you were excited to see who would win.....do u mean to tell me that's how u felt during the teixeira fight??? He should have got a dpotn bonus (dominant performance of the night together with Andy) Phone Post

Not sure why it is that insane. It was a very exciting fight to watch. Maldonado surviving through the onslaught to almost KO Glover at the end of the first round. Even at the end of the second when Maldonado couldn't stand straight he was landing and dangerous. It wasn't just a simple one sided mauling. It is a fight that illustrates fighting spirit to the fullest. Also, fight of the night doesn't mean simply back and forth. Fight of the night should mean the most exciting fight. When Glover was dancing in the cage at the end of the first after Maldonado clipped him, that was the only moment of the night that made me jump out of my seat. Now that was insane.

Davis subbed a guy who was actually trying to beat him. Herman's finances should be investigated to make sure he didn't take home a 'pre-fight' bonus.

I hope they pay Maia behind the scenes. His sub was epic.

Sub of the night should've gone to Maia. The way he toyed with very tough Rick Story on the ground was just amazing.

Maia's dominance was fantastic and hopefully he was well taken care of. But it's Big Nog, in Brazil, no way he doesn't get the official bonus.
