White was in a generous mood, handing out two Submission of the Night awards and two Knockout of the Night awards. Submission of the Night went to Paul Sass, who forced opponent Jacob Volkmann to tap from a triangle armbar. The second bonus went to Stefan Struve, who opened the main card with a vicious armbar over knockout artist Lavar Johnson.
The two Knockout of the Nights bonuses went to Dan Hardy and Roy Nelson. Hardy ended a four-fight losing streak in emphatic fashion, dropping Duane Ludwig with a left hook before finishing up with ground strikes. Nelson made quick work of opponent Dave Herman, stopping him with an overhand right early in the first round.
All bonused fighters received $70,000 (no Fight of the Night was awarded).
