UFC 164: Post-Fight Presser and Fight Night Bonus Recap

 Read below to find out who took home Fight Night bonuses at UFC 164...

Seven fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 164 post-fight press conference: Ben Rothwell, Chad Mendes, Frank Mir, Anthony Pettis, Josh Barnett, Dustin Poirier, and Benson Henderson

Hot topics of conversation were the stoppage in the Mir vs. Barnett bout, which most agreed was early; what might be next for Pettis, who injured his knee during the fight; and what it was like for Barnett to return to the Octagon.

Welterweights Hyun Gyu Lim and Pascal Krauss earned Fight of the Night for their exciting brawl. Both fighters were almost even on strikes landed -- 26 for Lim and 21 for Krauss -- but a late-round flurry tilted the fight in favor of the South Korean.

Chad Mendes received Knockout of the Night for his stoppage of Clay Guida, a feat that no other fighter had accomplished before tonight.

New Lightweight champion Pettis took home Submission of the Night for his first round armbar of Henderson. Both of Henderson's arms we trapped in Pettis' clutches, forcing the former champ to verbally tap. 

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