Four fighters walked away from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas with a postfight bonus on Saturday night, pocketing $75,000 for their efforts at UFC 132.

Carlos Condit took home “Knockout of the Night” for his first-round stoppage of Dong Hyun Kim, while Tito Ortiz was awarded “Submission of the Night” honors, as “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” forced Ryan Bader to tap out to a guillotine choke in their light heavyweight affair. Both champion Dominick Cruz and challenger Urijah Faber received the “Fight of the Night” bonus for their back-and-forth bantamweight title tilt in the evening's headliner.

Condit relieved “Stun Gun” of his wits in spectacular fashion, as “The Natural Born Killer” launched a perfectly-timed flying knee that send the South Korean reeling to the canvas. Condit followed, landing in half guard and winging punches at the face of his defenseless foe, forcing referee Steve Mazzagatti to save Kim at 2:58 of the opening frame.

Defying the bookmakers, Ortiz sent the favored Bader packing with a tight, arm-in guillotine choke in the first round. After dropping his younger opponent with a short right hand, Ortiz pounced, landing an uppercut to a recovering Bader before catching his fellow wrestler in the fight-ending submission. Bader held out as long as he could, but eventually Ortiz's squeeze proved too powerful, ending the bout at 1:56 of round one.

Cruz and Faber battled tooth-and-nail for five rounds in their bantamweight title main event. Both men landed significant shots standing, and both men threatened with takedown attempts. In the end, however, it was Cruz who got his hand raised, earning a unanimous decision to retain his title and avenge the lone loss of his career.
