UFC 157 Bonuses

ANAHEIM, Calif. – Robbie Lawler, Kenny Robertson, Dennis Bermudez and Matt Grice each earned $50,000 bonuses for their performances at Saturday's UFC 157 event.

Lawler earned the "Knockout of the Night" award, Robertson picked up the "Submission of the Night" bonus, and Bermudez and Grice took home "Fight of the Night" honors.

UFC President Dana White announced the bonus amount after UFC 157, which took place at Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims on FX and Facebook.

Lawler (20-9 MMA, 5-3 UFC) was being controlled by Josh Koscheck (17-7 MMA, 15-7 UFC) on the ground. But when Lawler found a way out, and Koscheck was on his hands and knees along the fence, Lawler started dropping in giant right hands that stunned Koscheck. And though the stoppage was thought by many online, as well as UFC analyst Joe Rogan, to be potentially too early, referee Herb Dean waved it off to give Lawler the TKO victory. It was Lawler's first UFC fight in more than eight years.

Robertson (12-2 MMA, 1-2 UFC) was in trouble early against Brock Jardine (9-3 MMA, 0-2 UFC), but he turned things around and the former wrestler from Eastern Illinois University was able to secure a leg lock in a very non-traditional way. Robertson grabbed Jardine's leg and pressured his hamstring with his own leg to force the tap.

Bermudez (10-3 MMA, 3-1 UFC) survived a rough first round against Grice (16-5 MMA, 2-5 UFC) and battled his way into the third, where he came close to stopping the fight what seemed like a dozen times. Bermudez, the Season 14 runner-up on "The Ultimate Fighter," had Grice constantly wobbled with big punches and knees, but Grice refused to give up and go down – and even landed a few big punches in exchange. But ultimately, it was Bermudez who picked up the nod from two of the judges in a split decision on the FX-broadcast prelims.
