It was a story book ending for the career of one of the most entertaining fighters in the sport. After two and a half rounds of a back and forth stand-up batlle, Chris Lytle choked out Dan Hardy, and confirmed that he will be indeed retiring from Mixed Martial Arts.

The final victory of his career netted him three more bonuses, two $65,000 Fight Night bonuses for Fight of the Night and Submission of the Night, plus a 2012 Harley Davidson Blackline motorcycle. Some might say that Jim Miller vs. Ben Henderson also deserved Fight of the Night honors, but it's hard to get upset with the great moment Lytle had as he ended his fighting days.

It was a fitting ending, and a great send off for the always entertaining Lytle, who solidified himself as the top 'Bonus hunter' with a total of 10 Fight Night bonuses in the UFC.

UFC on Versus 5 - Fight Night Bonuses ($65,000 each):

Fight of the Night: Dan Hardy vs. Chris Lytle
Submission of the Night: Chris Lytle
Knockout of the Night: Donald Cerrone
