Read below to find out who took him fight night bonuses at UFC 167.
Several fighters joined UFC® President Dana White at the UFC® 167 post-fight press conference - Donald Cerrone, Johny Hendricks, Chael Sonnen, Tyron Woodley, Rashad Evans, Robbie Lawler, Ali Bagautinov, and Georges St-Pierre

At the opening of the press conference, White made a few announcements pertaining to events in 2014. The Jan. 15 event in Atlanta will be headlined by Luke Rockhold and Costa Philippou while UFC on FOX in Chicago will feature Benson Henderson vs. Josh Thomson

White also announced that UFC 171 will be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, TX. 

Headliners St-Pierre and Hendricks took home Fight of the Night for their welterweight title bout which ended in a controversial decision. The champion and No. 1 contender engaged in a back-and-forth bout that forced GSP to make a quick visit to the paramedics for a few stitches. The judges awarded St-Pierre the split decision, despite Hendricks controlling majority of the fight.

Woodley took home Knockout of the Night for his first-round KO of Josh Koscheck. The welterweight landed several big blows throughout the first rounds but it was a powerful left hand that put the veteran Koscheck down for good.

Cerrone was awarded Submission of the Night after his stoppage of Evan Dunham. Each landed 24-plus significant strikes before Cerrone took the fight to the ground and locked in the finishing choke.

All bonused fighters received $50,000 for their efforts
