MONTREAL – Johny Hendricks, Ivan Menjivar, Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit each earned $70,000 bonuses for their performances at Saturday's UFC 154 event.
Hendricks earned the "Knockout of the Night" award, Menjivar won the "Submission of the Night" bonus, and St-Pierre and Condit picked up "Fight of the Night" honors.
UFC officials announced the winners and bonus amounts following the event, which took place at Montreal's Bell Centre.
The event's main card, including St-Pierre's title-unification win over interim champ Condit and Hendricks quick knockout of Martin Kampmann, aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.
While Hendricks is widely praised for his wrestling background, he's quickly become a lethal striker with his third "Knockout of the Night" bonus in his past five fights. His latest check came courtesy a crushing left up the middle that put fellow top welterweight contender Kampmann flat on his back. A follow-up left sealed the deal just 46 seconds into the opening round of their co-main event contest.
Menjivar scored his second career UFC "Submission of the Night" bonus with a nasty armbar of UFC newcomer and fellow bantamweight Azamat Gashimov. It was Gashimov who initially took his opponent to the mat with a trip takedown, but that backfired when a traditional armbar setup from Menjivar turned into a belly-down varietal that scored a submission win for "The Pride of El Salvador."
St-Pierre and Condit, meanwhile, were the night's main attraction. Condit scored a third-round knockdown when he tagged St-Pierre, who was fighting for the first time in 19 months, with a head kick. But St-Pierre largely controlled the fight with dominant top position and aggressive striking. Despite a surgically repaired knee, he looked fresh and took the decision via 49-46, 50-45 and 50-45 scores. Each fighter, though, left the grueling affair both bruised and bloodied.
