The UFC handed three fighters additional cheddar for their special performances inside the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday night. UFC middleweight champion Anderson Silva takes home a cool $120,00 after taking Fight of the Night and Knockout of the Night honors.
Some thought Silva had fallen off the MMA radar for a second, and if he did, he sure returned with a bang with his 1stRound shellacking of Forrest Griffin at UFC 101.
UFC champ BJ Penn earned Submission of the Night with his rear-naked choke of Kenny Florian in the 4thRound of their title fight.
Fight of the Night:
Anderson Silva and Forrest Griffin ($60,000/each)
Knockout of the Night:
Anderson Silva ($60,000)
Submission of the Night:
BJ Penn ($60,000)
