Read below to see who earned Fight Night Bonuses at UFC® 145...
Six fighters joined UFC President Dana White at the UFC 145 post-fight press conference:UFC® light heavyweight champion Jon Jones, Rory MacDonald, Ben Rothwell, Michael McDonald, Rashad Evans, and Travis Browne.

Rothwell earned Knockout of the Night for his starching of Brendan Schaub. After eating a few big shots from Schaub early, Rothwell dropped the TUF vet with a left hook, then followed up with ground strikes that forced a stoppage from referee Herb Dean in the first round.

Fight of the Night went to main card fighters Eddie Yagin and Mark Hominick. The featherweights engaged in an exciting standup war that left both men battered and bloody. When the dust settled, Yagin earned the victory via split decision.

Browne was awarded Submission of the Night for his first-round arm triangle victory over STRIKEFORCE® import Chad Griggs. "Hapa" blitzed Griggs early with knees before taking the fight to the ground, and forced the tapout at the 2:29 mark.

All bonused fighters received $65,000
