Four men walked away from UFC on FX 1 with post-fight bonuses on Saturday night, as Jim Miller, Pat Barry, Christian Morecraft and Nick Denis each took home an extra $45,000 from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tenn.

Miller was awarded "Submission of the Night" for his finish of fellow headliner Melvin Guillard, and Denis was handed “Knockout of the Night” after leveling Joseph Sandoval in just 22 seconds. Meanwhile, Barry and Morecraft each earned “Fight of the Night” for their one-round heavyweight affair.

Guillard showed off his considerable punching power early in the main event, dropping Miller with a straight left and following with a flurry of punches. However, the savvy AMA Fight Club representative managed to keep his wits about him, catching a flying knee from Guillard and quickly turning it to his advantage, taking Guillard's back and sinking in the fight-ending rear-naked choke.

Denis wasted no time in taking it to Sandoval, popping him with several straight punches before locking up a single collar tie and unleashing a flurry of short elbows to Sandoval’s temple. Sandoval’s knees quickly buckled and gravity took effect. The referee waved off the bout as Sandoval fell limply to the mat.

Though Morecraft appeared to be the dominant fighter early in the heavyweight bout, Barry showed improved submission defense and managed to escape Morecraft’s takedowns. Back on his feet, the kickboxer slipped a shot and launched a murderous left hook, clipping Morecraft and sending him reeling to the canvas. “HD” followed with heavy ground-and-pound, relieving his opponent of his consciousness in just 3:38.
