UFC 141 Bonuses: Diaz vs. Cerrone Earns Fight of Night Honors

Nate Diaz, Donald Cerrone and Johny Hendricks each walked out of UFC 141 Friday night $75,000 richer.

In the Fight of the Night, Diaz outboxed Cerrone through three rounds for a convincing decision win (30-27, 30-27, 29-28). The fight was strictly a standup affair, with Diaz sticking to his rapid-fire boxing and Cerrone mixing in his Muay Thai kickboxing background.

While Diaz was the clear winner with his accurate punches, Cerrone drew excitement from the Vegas crowd every time he chopped Diaz to the floor with leg kicks.


Hendricks won Knockout of the Night bonus with his 12-second finish over former title contender Jon Fitch. Hendricks landed a big left hand to flatten Fitch and then followed with one more before referee Steve Mazzagatti stepped in.

There were no submission finishes on the card. In the 10 fights, seven went to decisions while three ended in (T)KOs.
