UFC on FX 5 Post-Fight Presser and Fight Night Bonus Recap

 Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC on FX: Browne vs. Bigfoot...
Eight fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® on FX post-fight press conference - Travis Browne, Antonio Silva, Jacob Volkmann, Michael Johnson, John Dodson, Justin Edwards, Jake Ellenberger, and Marcus LeVesseur.

Johnson took home Knockout of the Night for his come-from-behind stoppage of Danny Castillo. After weathering an early storm from Castillo, Johnson landed a left hook in the second round that sent his opponent crashing to the canvas.

Edwards was awarded Submission of the Night for his quick submission of veteran Josh Neer. Edwards blitzed Neer early, then locked in a guillotine choke that put "The Dentist" to sleep early in the first round.

Fight of the Night went to preliminary card fighters Diego Nunes and Bart Palaszewski. The featherweights engaged in a fast-paced battle in which both fighters were wobbled by punches. After three exciting rounds, Nunes received the nod on all three judges' scorecards.

All bonused fighters received $40,000 for their efforts.
