Roy Nelson, Mark Bocek, Frankie Edgar and Matt Veach each walked out of The Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada with an extra $25,000 for their special performances inside the Octagon on Saturday night.

It was a big night for “Big County” Nelson as not only did he earn a 1stRound knockout of Brendan Schaub to capture a six-figure UFC contract, but the organization felt that his vicious beatdown of the Jackson Submission-trained fighter warranted the extra cheddar.

And why not? Nelson slapped Schaub senseless … literally.

Nelson will be the first to tell you, $25K can buy you a ton of Burger King cheeseburgers.

Bocek was impressive in his schooling of UFC newcomer Joe Brammer as he locked-in a sick rear-naked in the 1stRound of their tango.

Speaking of rear-naked chokes, Edgar continued his winning ways by getting Veach to tap in the 2ndRound of their lightweight contest.

Fight of the Night:

Frankie Edgar and Matt Veach ($25,000/each)

Submission of the Night:

Mark Bocek ($25,000)

Knockout of the Night:

Roy Nelson ($25,000)
