Lauzon and Jamie Varner were awarded Fight of the Night for their crowd-pleasing, back-and-forth battle. The two lightweight standouts traded blows - and momentum - for nearly the entire 15 minutes before "J-Lau" sunk in a triangle choke that forced Varner to tap. For his trouble, Lauzon was also given Submission of the Night.

Each bonused fighter received $50,000 (with Lauzon taking home $100,000 for eanring both Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night).
