UFC 157 Post-Fight Presser and Bonus Recap

Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC 157...
A whopping nine fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 157 post-fight press conference - Ronda Rousey, Liz carmouche, Dan Henderson, Urijah Faber, Lyoto Machida, Court McGee, Robbie Lawler, Matt Grice and Dennis Bermudez.

Bermudez and Grice took home Fight of the Night in a battle that was an early Fight of the Year candidate. The featherweights engaged in a true back-and-forth war, with both fighters nearly finishing each other on multiple occasions. Bermudez ultimately earned the nod on two judges' scorecards, winning via split decision.

After nearly a decade away from the Octagon™, Lawler received Knockout of the Night for his first-round stoppage of Josh Koscheck. Koscheck took Lawler down early, but Lawler was able to get back to his feet and unleashed a barrage of punches against the fence that forced the referee to step in.

Preliminary card fighter Kenny Robertson received Submission of the Night for his inventive tapout of Brock Jardine. After taking Jardine's back, Robertson secured a leg lock that forced Jardine to quit midway through the first round.

Each bonused fighter received $50,000 for their efforts.
