After a spectacular night of MMA action, UFC President Dana White awarded Robbie Lawler (Pictured), Kenny Robertson, Dennis Bermudez and Matt Grice each an additional $50,000 for their special performances Saturday night at “UFC 157: Rousey vs. Carmouche.”

Lawler’s 1stRound TKO victory over Josh Koscheck was the only knockout on the evening, so his ‘Knockout of the Night’ award was a no-brainer.

On a night where Ronda Rousey did her trademark armbar thing, Robertson’s unique knee bar on Brock Jardine earned him ‘Submission of the Night.’

Bermudez and Grice went back-and-forth for 15 thrilling minutes to take home ‘Fight of the Night’ honors. Bermudez also scored a split decision victory.

UFC 157 took place inside Honda Center in Anaheim, California.

Fight of the Night:

Dennis Bermudez and Matt Grice  ($50,000/each)

Submission of the Night:

Kenny Robertson ($50,000)

Knockout of the Night:

Robbie Lawler ($50,000)
