TUFC 158 Poster PBP-GRAY-478x270he Ultimate Fighting Championship awarded $50,000 performance bonuses to three UFC 158: St-Pierre vs. Diaz fighters following the event at the Bell Centre in Montreal on Saturday night.

The Fight of the Night bonus went to the co-main event fighters Carlos Condit and Johny Hendricks.  The two top welterweight contenders fought to a decision in an action-packed war.  Hendricks’ wrestling was the difference in what was a Fight of the Year candidate.

Jake Ellenberger’s first-round knockout of Nate Marquardt earned him the Knockout of the Night award.  Ellenberger, known for his knockout punching power, landed a combination along the cage the knocked Marquardt down.  As Marquardt struggled to grab a leg, Ellenberger delivered a right hand that rendered him unconscious.

There was no Submission of the Night bonus for UFC 158 because there wasn’t a submission finish in the 12 fights on the card.

Welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre retained his title in the main event with a unanimous decision win over Nick Diaz.  St-Pierre used his jab and wrestling ability to nullify Diaz’s offense.  All three scorecards read 50-47 for St-Pierre.

A total of $150,000 was awarded in bonus money following UFC 158.
