Cub Swanson at WEC 41There were a lot of great finishes and a lot of great fights at UFC 152: Jones vs. Belfort on Saturday night in Toronto, but as always, UFC officials narrowed it down and handed out post-fight bonuses to four fighters.

While many people expected UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones to defeat last-minute replacement Vitor Belfort, not many expected the fashion by which he did it.

After softening Belfort up with his striking game through the better part of the fight, Jones hit the mat with Belfort in round four, quickly submitting him with an Americana. The finish netted Jones an extra $65,000 for the Submission of the Night.

The UFC 152 Knockout of the Night caught hardly anyone by surprise as Cub Swanson is know for the power in his hands. He displayed it once again, knocking out Charles Oliveira midway through the opening round of their fight, putting an additional $65,000 in his pocket.

T.J. Grant and Evan Dunham were on the FX prelim portion of the fight card and took their fight to a decision, but the fashion with which they fought earned them the UFC 152 Fight of the Night bonuses. Grant and Dunham went nose-to-nose the entire fight, but it was Grant that was more proficient, bloodying Dunham’s face en route to the unanimous decision victory.

Stay tuned to for full UFC 152 post-fight coverage.
