Kenny Florian, Joe Lauzon, James Irvin and Nate Diaz all earned "fight night" bonuses at Wednesday's UFC Fight Night 13 event.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) has learned that the fighters received $20,000 bonuses for their performances.

UFC Fight Night 13 took place at the Broomfield Event Center near Denver. The 12-fight event featured a headline bout between Florian and Lauzon, and the main card aired on Spike TV.

Florian defeated Lauzon with a second-round TKO in an entertaining lightweight bout that had title implications. After a close first round, Florian dominated the second after securing the mount position. Both fighters were awarded bonuses for "Fight of the Night."

Irvin, who defeated Houston Alexander and tied the record for the quickest knockout in UFC history, picked of "Knockout of the Night" honors. Irvin set up the eight-second TKO with a Superman punch -- his first punch of the fight -- that floored his opponent. Alexander protested the stoppage with referee Steve Mazzagatti, but it did little good.

Diaz, meanwhile, picked up a "Submission of the Night" bonus for a remarkable, come-from-behind victory over Kurt Pellegrino. After being battered and bloodied in the first round, Diaz secured a fight-ending triangle choke in the second. "The Ultimate Fighter 6" winner, confident in the submission hold, actually flexed for the cameras and celebrated the victory before his opponent tapped out

I personally found the Diaz vs. Pellegrino fight to be the best of the night. It's all good though.

I'd be careful touching gloves before the fight around Steve Mazzagatti, he might call a TKO on you

No love for Anthony Johnson?

I thought Irvin's KO was cool, but Johnson was Silva-esque in his percision and striking efficiency.

I picked A Johnson to win via Round 1 KO his last fight, and the same with this fight. his Boxing is among the best in that class, although his chin hasn't been tested yet. and that button nose looks like a big ol' target

Yeah, I think Johnson should have received the fight bonus as well. However, I think that the bonus was giving to Irvin because he tied Don Frye's record with an 8 second KO.

johnson should have won ko of the night because we all knew tommy speer was really out, and that fight was a premature stop ala houston and irvin.

I thought the Speer - Johnson fight was stopped a bit prematurely. I could still see some life in Speer's eyes when the ref called it.

Give it up people, Houston was out....It was not a premature stoppage.
