UFC 149 Post-Fight Press Conference and Fight Night Bonus Recap

Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC® 149...
Six fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 149 post-fight press conference: Renan Barao, Tim Boetsch, Bryan Caraway, Ryan Jimmo, Matt Riddle, and Urijah Faber.

Riddle won Submission of the Night for his win over Chris Clements. After engaging in an exciting brawl for much of the fight, Riddle used a missed spinning backfist from Clements to secure an arm triangle that forced the tapout.

Jimmo took home Knockout of the Night for his lightning-quick finish of Anthony Perosh. After touching gloves at the beginning of the first round, Jimmo connected with a right hand that immediately put Perosh to sleep. After clocking a mere seven seconds in his Octagon debut, Jimmo earned one of the quickest knockouts in UFC® history.

Fight of the Night went to Caraway and Mitch Gagnon. The two bantamweights engaged in a back-and-forth war which saw Caraway emerge victorious via rear naked choke.

Each bonused fighter received $65,000 for their efforts.
