Rich Franklin, Wanderlei Silva, Rodrigo Damm and Marcos "Vina" Vinicius on Saturday won $65,000 bonuses for their performances at UFC 147.

Franklin and Silva shared the "Fight of the Night" award for their five-round main-event, Damm won "Submission of the Night" and Vinicius picked up "Knockout of the Night." UFC officials announced the winners and bonus amounts at the post-event press conference, which MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) attended.

UFC 147 took place at Estadio Jornalista Felipe Drumond in Belo Horizonte, Brazil. The main card aired on pay-per-view following prelims that on Facebook and FX.

For Franklin and Silva, it was the second time their main event has picked up "Fight of the Night" honors. Their first fight, at UFC 99 three years ago, also won the award. Franklin won that fight by unanimous decision. And on Saturday, he was able to do it again – but in a five-round war that had him needing to survive a major offensive surge from Silva in the second.

Great card last night. The prelims were what stole this show though. Every fight was great in its own way. The Main Event was a hell of a fight, I can't stress that enough but imo I enjoyed the prelims more than the main card.

147 was much better than FX 4 though. I didn't expect that. Now only 2 weeks until the biggest rematch in mma today. I can't wait.

I can't wait either. I don't remember being this excited for a MMA figjt since Brock/Randy or maybe even Chuck/Tito
