UFC Lavar Johnson

After a night of freebie MMA action, UFC president Dana White awarded Lavar Johnson (Pictured), Nate Diaz, Louis Gaudinot and John Lineker each an additional $65,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC on FOX: Diaz vs. Miller.”

Johnson added to his UFC highlight-reel footage by putting Pat Barry down with a vicious barrage of punches in their heavyweight affair. The 1stRound finish earned him ‘Knockout of the Night’ honors.

Diaz’s impressive guillotine choke on Jim Miller in the show’s featured attraction most likely punched his ticket to a lightweight title fight, but also scored him ‘Submission of the Night.’

Gaudinot was in trouble early on against Lineker, but he managed to rally and catch his opponent in a guillotine choke in the 2ndRound of their back-and-forth battle.

UFC on FOX 3” took place inside IZOD Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Louis Gaudinot and John Lineker ($65,000/each)
