UFCTroops3-Tim-KennedyFor outstanding performances at UFC Fight for the Troops 3, Tim Kennedy, Michael Chiesa, Rustam Khabilov, and Jorge Masvidal took home fight night bonuses on Wednesday night. The fighters took home an additional $50,000 for their efforts during the event, which took place at Fort Campbell Army Base in Fort Campbell, Ky.

For finishing Rafael Natal in the main event, Kennedy earned the Knockout of the Night with a highlight reel finish. The military veteran scored the knockout with punches at 4:40 of the first round.

Nabbing the Submission of the Night was Chiesa, who finished Colton Smith in the second round of their main card fight. The Ultimate Fighter 15 winner locked on a rear-naked choke, finishing the contest at the 1:41 mark of the round.

The Fight of the Night went to Khabilov and Masvidal for their main card showcasing. UFC president Dana White said during the post-fight news conference that many of the evening’s matches were well fought, making it difficult to select the outstanding fight.
