UFC 112: "Invincible" from the Concert Arena in Ferrari World on Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, has officially wrapped, which means that it’s time for those select fighters who went above and beyond in their respective fights to get a little extra grease for their efforts.

To the tune of $75,000 each.

The promotion dished out its standard post-fight monetary bonuses to four out of the 20 fighters on the overseas card. And it may not surprise you which combatants are leaving the United Arab Emirates with a little extra green.

However, if you're holding out for the 10 p.m. ET replay of "Invincible," spoilers are located after the jump.

Star-divide

In addition to their base salaries, the UFC awarded welterweight competitors Mark Munoz and Kendall Grove "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling, back-and-forth war of attrition.

The "Philippine Wrecking Machine" lived up to his billing by stepping on "Da Spyder" in the second round. Grove was dominating the fight until that point but Munoz showed a combination of tremendous heart and frightening power to earn the come-from-behind win

Is he ready to take on some of the division's top dogs?

Also representing the 170-pound weight class was former Ultimate Fighter finalist DaMarques Johnson. He made it a "Bad" night for Brad Blackburn after landing a devastating kick to the body that brought an end to the contest and awarded Johnson "Knockout of the Night."

Bringing home the proverbial bacon for a "textbook" display of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was surging lightweight prospect Rafael dos Anjos. The Gracie Fusion standout won his third straight fight by tapping out Terry Etim with a slick "Submission of the Night" via armbar.

Here are the special fight bonuses for UFC 112:

Fight of the Night — Mark Munoz vs. Kendall Grove
Knockout of the Night — DaMarques Johnson
Submission of the Night — Rafael dos Anjos

Nice to see some younger/undercard talents getting some love. I always like when Dana and the UFC award these prizes to those who could use them most, and not the already high earning main eventers who don't always fight to their potential.
