The Ultimate Fighting Championship handed out $50,000 fighter bonuses for in-Octagon performances following UFC 156: Aldo vs. Edgar on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Jose Aldo, Frankie Edgar, Antonio Silva and Bobby Green took home the extra earnings.

Fight of the Night honors went to the main event fighters.  Jose Aldo defended his UFC featherweight title in a hard fought war with former UFC lightweight titleholder Frankie Edgar.  The fight went the distance with Aldo doing enough in the early rounds to garner a unanimous decision.

The Knockout of the Night came in the heavyweight division.  Antonio “Big Foot” Silva derailed Alistair Overeem’s title hopes with a third round knockout over the accomplished striker.

The Submission of the Night bonus was awarded to Bobby Green who submitted Jacob Volkmann in preliminary action that aired on FX.   Volkmann saw early success, but as the fight wore on, Green took over the fight and ended it with a rear naked choke.

Total bonus money awarded following UFC 256: Aldo vs. Edgar totaled $200,000.
