UFC 158 Post-Fight Presser and Bonus Recap

Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC 158...
Five fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 158 post fight press conference - UFC® welterweight champion Georges St-Pierre, Johny Hendricks, Carlos Condit, Nick Diaz and Jake Ellenberger.

To the surprise of no one, Hendricks and Condit earned Fight of the Night for their exciting, back-and-forth brawl. Hendricks was able to take Condit down at will, but Condit was able to attack with submission attempts from his guard. On the feet, the fighters exchanged in wild flurries that saw both men staggered multiple times during the fight. Hendricks was ultimately awarded a close unanimous decision, earning a future shot at St-Pierre's title.

Ellenberger took home Knockout of the Night for his first-round finish of veteran Nate Marquardt. After a few early leg kicks from Marquardt, Ellenberger landed a right hand that dropped the former Strikeforce® champion. Ellenberger followed up with several hard shots on the ground before the referee stepped in to stop the fight.

With no submissions at UFC® 158, no Submission of the Night was awarded.

All bonused fighters received $50,000 for their efforts.
