36-Vitor-Belfort-UFC126w_5168-478x270The Ultimate Fighting Championship awarded $50,000 fighter bonuses following UFC on FX 8 in Jaragua do Sul, Brazil, on Saturday.  Lucas Martins, Jeremy Larsen, Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, and Vitor Belfort took home the bonus awards for their performances.

Fight of the Night honors went to the first fight of the night, Lucas Martins vs. Jeremy Larsen.  It was a back-and-forth fight with both men having their moments.  Martins overcame being knocked down twice in the opening round to score a third-round knockout early in the final stanza.

The Submission of the Night bonus was awarded to UFC newcomer Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza for his co-main event submission of Chris Camozzi.  Souza was able to get the fight to the ground and put his grappling prowess on display.  Souza mounted Camozzi and locked on an arm-triangle choke that put Camozzi to sleep.

The Knockout of the Night came in the main event on the card.  Former UFC light heavyweight titleholder Vitor Belfort landed a spinning heel kick to the jaw of former Strikeforce middleweight champion Luke Rockhold.  Rockhold was dropped by the kick and Belfort finished with a series of punches on the ground.

The amount of bonus money awarded following UFC on FX 8 totaled $200,000.
