UFC 129 Fight Night Bonuses Handed Out

I'm here live at the UFC 129: St. Pierre vs. Shields press conference on the floor of the Rogers Centre. I'll be updating this live stream with news and notes from this conference. For more live updates from this event, follow me on Twitter: @MMANation.

Fight night honors went to Pablo Garza. He took home the Submission of the Night with his flying triangle win over Yves Jabouin. Lyoto Machida earned Knockout of the Night honors for flattening Randy Couture with a front kick. And both Jose Aldo and Mark Hominick took home Fight of the Night honors. Each of them earned $129,000 for their efforts. MMA Junkie add context to their bonsues:

With the event setting the North American MMA attendance and live-gate records, UFC president Dana White was in a giving mood. The bonuses marked the largest published across-the-board "Fight Night" bonuses in the UFC's history, topping the $100,000 offered to the top participants at 2009's landmark UFC 100 event.

Diego Sanchez and Martin Kampmann still remain the biggest single-night bonus winners for their headlining contest at this past month's UFC on Versus 3 event, when White awarded each fighter $160,000 "Fight of the Night" bonuses for their three-round thriller. But UFC on Versus 3 "Knockout of the Night" winner Shane Roller and "Submission of the Night" winner Brian Bowles each earned $40,000 bonuses for their performances.
