UFC 154 Fighter Bonuses: GSP and Carlos Condit Deliver Fight of the Night


Georges St-Pierre vs Carlos Condit UFC 154 weighThe Ultimate Fighting Championship handed out $70,000 bonuses for in-Octagon performances following UFC 154: St-Pierre vs. Condit at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Canada on Saturday.  Georges St-Pierre, Carlos Condit, Johny Hendricks, and Ivan Menjivar took home the bonus awards.

Fight of the Night went to the main event fighters, Georges St-Pierre and Carlos Condit.  The two went the distance in a bloody battle to unify the welterweight championship.  St-Pierre controlled Condit with his superior grappling to garner a unanimous decision.  Condit had his moment in the third round, when he landed a high kick that dropped St-Pierre, but was unable to finish the champion.

The Knockout of the Night award came in the co-main event between Johny Hendricks and Martin Kampmann.  Hendricks solidified his status as the top contender in the welterweight division by dispatching of Kampmann in just 46 seconds with a devastating left hand.

Submission of the Night honors went to Ivan Menjivar.  ”The Pride of El Salvador” secured an armbar victory over Azamat Gashimov in preliminary action.  The fight aired on Facebook.
