The UFC always makes the big win pay off and last night's UFC Fight Night 24 was no exception. 24 men fought on the card, but only four received public post fight awards. 

  • Chan Sung Jung, aka "The Korean Zombie" won Submission of the Night $55,000
    Jung caught Leonard Garcia in "the twister" in the second round of their rematch. He credited watching Eddie Bravo videos on YouTube with teaching him the move. It was the first time the neck crank had been used to get the submission in UFC history although it's been used in MMA before.
  • Johny Hendricks won Knock Out of the Night, $55,000
    Welterweight Hendricks fought T.J. Waldburger in one of only three bouts not to make either the Spike TV or Facebook broadcasts from the event. Hendricks KO'd Waldburger with a vicious left hook under two minutes into their bout.
  • Michael McDonald and Edwin Figueroa each take home $55,000 for the Fight of the Night
    The two bantamweights put on the most back-and-forth fight of the evening and did well for themselves by winning the Fight of the Night.
[UPDATE] - UFC Fight Night 24 sets attendance and gate record for a Fight Night event:
14,212 fans with a live gate of $1,182,850
