Scott JorgensenThe Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday returned to Seattle for UFC on Fox 5: Henderson vs. Diaz. The fighters on the card must have been just as excited as company president Dana White because they delivered action in spades, giving the boss numerous options for post-fight bonuses.

Those fighters that did capture the post-fight honors were rewarded with $65,000 each for their efforts.

The fight of the night honors went to the first fight on the card, the Facebook streamed bout between Scott Jorgensen and John Albert.

The fight looked as though it was going Albert’s way when he locked on a triangle choke. Jorgensen escaped, got caught again, but escaped again, and then turned the tables with a modified grip rear naked choke in the waning moments of the first round.

Jorgensen squeezed with all his might, Albert finally submitting just milliseconds before the horn sounded.

The back-and-forth battle netted the two Fight of the Night honors, but the finish also earned Jorgensen the Submission of the Night, as well.

The Knockout of the Night went to a veteran that is no stranger to knocking his opposition out and has been competing for a decade and a half.

Everyone was watching for Jeremy Stephens’ knockout power, but it was 36-year-old Yves Edwards that was patient, waiting to counter, and eventually landed a right hook to the jaw that floored Stephens. Edwards dropped down and finished him off with a couple of well placed elbows to the face, scoring the Knockout of the Night and a $65,000 bonus check.

The official UFC on Fox 5 post-fight bonuses were issued to the tune of $260,000 total on Saturday night in Seattle.
