Josh Koscheck, Nate Diaz, Jon Jones and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson each earned $75,000 fight-night bonuses for their performances at Saturday's UFC 135 event.

Koscheck earned the night's "Knockout of the Night" award, Diaz picked up the "Submission of the Night" bonus, and Jones and Jackson took home "Fight of the Night" honors.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the bonus winners and award amounts at UFC 135's post-fight press conference.

UFC 135 took place at Denver's Pepsi Center. The night's main card aired on pay-per-view, and Facebook and Spike TV carried portions of the preliminary card.

All four bonus winners competed on the PPV main card...

I don't know if I would've given fight of the night to Jones v Rampage. It was a pretty one sided beating, when I think fight of the night I think of a back and forth fight, not one guy crushing the other from start to finish.

I would've probably given it to Mizugaki vs Escovedo.

I think they got it right, only because there were really 2 SOTN's and since Jones/Rampage was more of a fight than Diaz/Gomi, which was destruction, they gave Diaz SOTN and Jones/Rampage FOTN. Rampage being finished couldn't go without a bonus of some sort and Diaz deserved a bonus more than Mizugaki/Escovedo without a doubt. I'd assume that was the logic behind it.
