By FCF Staff
Jon Jones and Quinton “Rampage” Jackson took home an extra $75,000 for their efforts last night at UFC 135 in Denver, as the promotion announced afterwards that the main event competitors received “Fight of the Night” honors.
Jones defended his light-heavyweight belt by submitting Jackson with a fourth round, rear-naked-choke.
“Knock-Out of the Night” went to Josch Koscheck, who received an additional $75,000 for putting away former champion Matt Hughes late in the first round with a series of ground-and-pound strikes.
And “Submission of the Night” was awarded to Nate Diaz, who after punishing Takanori Gomi on his feet, tapped out the former Pride lightweight champ with an armbar in round one.
