After a mind-blowing UFC Fight Night card capped by a vicious guillotine submission finish by light heavyweight Chael Sonnen on FOX Sports 1, UFC president Dana White held court at the post-fight press conference inside Boston's TD Garden to divvy out $50K bonuses for jobs well done.

UFC Fight Night's results were packed with so many exciting moments, White announced that the UFC would award six, not four, $50,000 post-fight bonuses.

Never one to rest on his laurels, Sonnen returned to the set of UFC Tonight last night to resume his co-hosting duties alongside Kenny Florian. In the show's 'Bonus Round' segment, the duo dissected the six bonuses divvied out in Boston.

Sonnen scored Submission Of The Night for his first-round guillotine win over Mauricio 'Shogun' Rua; McDonald also picked up a sub bonus for his triangle-armbar of Brad Pickett.

Travis Browne and Matt Brown both earned KO Of The Night bonuses for their first-round finishes: Browne for the front-kick comeback that pancaked Alistair Overeem; Brown after plowing through former training partner Mike Pyle in just 29 seconds.

'Mayday' nabbed a second bonus check for Fight Of The Night; Pickett has now earned seven UFC/WEC bonuses in his ten-fight promotional career.

"And there are more coming," White hinted.
