Cerrone earned “Knockout of the Night” for his first round head kick KO of fellow lightweight Adriano Martins. Cerrone has earned a total of eight fight night bonuses during his two years fighting in the UFC. Prior to that he had earned five fight night bonuses fighting in the WEC, the UFC’s now-defunct sister promotion.
Caceres and Pettis took home $50,000 each for “Fight of the Night”, and Caceres took home an additional $50,000 for “Submission of the Night”. The dynamic striking of both fighters made for an exciting back-and-forth match, but the high-level experience of Caceres seemed to make the difference as he was able to sink in a fight-ending rear-naked choke with just 21-seconds left in the match.
