Nick Diaz, B.J. Penn, Bart Palaszewski and Donald Cerrone each earned $75,000 fight-night bonuses for their performances at Saturday's UFC 137 event.

Palaszewski earned the night's "Knockout of the Night" award, Cerrone picked up the "Submission of the Night" bonus, and Diaz and Penn took home "Fight of the Night" honors.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) learned of the bonus winners and award amounts at UFC 137's post-fight press conference.

UFC 137 took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. The night's main card aired on pay-per-view, and Facebook and Spike TV carried portions of the preliminary card.

All well deserved. The event was good, the main event was great.

Donald Cerrone is the future of the lightweight division! Real talk.

I want to see Cerrone fight Florian or Pettis. I'd be happy with a Lauzon fight as well.

Yeah..I want Cerrone vs. Lauzon. I think both guys are great, I dunno who I'd want to win more.

Great awards for great fights! I couldn't have been happier as a fan of Diaz, Palaszewski and Cerrone. Palaszewski hooked me up with the rare 13 pointer in his awesome debut at featherweight. I can see him making a run there, he looked pretty big for the weight class, build wise, and his skills are solid.

Cerrone is doing crazy big things these days! I can't believe what a machine he is. I can't help but wonder if and when he and Bendo are going to meet up in the Octagon. They have both looked better in the UFC than ever before, in my opinion. And that's insane to think, considering their WEC performances.

And Diaz! What can I say about him but he is the man. Like Dana White said, no one has ever done that to BJ Penn before. Diaz had Penn running in the first round! The one takedown BJ got, Diaz swept and landed on top, then he nullified BJ's ground even when Penn had his back.

I have never seen BJ's top game stifled like that before, and I have never seen anyone willing to stand with BJ for 3 rounds beat his ass that bad. Granted, BJ definitely got his licks in, and Diaz will be bummed for about a week on his face. Diaz was right there the whole time with BJ, and when he gassed, Nick brutalized him. I personally think that fight should've been 30-28 or 30-27 for Diaz.

Eh, i think BJ countered him pretty well in that first round to get the better shots in.

Hopeful Bartimus finally gets the respect he deserves. The odds on his fight with Tyson were so out of wack it was ridiculous.

He's gonna be a contender for sure.

cerrone is a badass. incredibly interesting to watch. that double switch kick he threw to siver's head was brilliant. him and henderson are the biggest talent to come out of the WEC i think. pettis....meh
