UFC 90 post-fight awards, numbers

Spencer Fisher, Tyson Griffin, Junior Dos Santos and Sean Sherk won post-fight awards following their performances at UFC 90 on Saturday.

Sherk and Griffin opened the pay-per-view with a Fight of the Night. The two wrestlers kept it standing and exchanged strikes until Sherk won on the scorecards after three rounds.

Dos Santos crumbled Fabricio Werdum with a right uppercut for the Knockout of the Night. Santos won his UFC debut eighty-one seconds into the fight.

Fisher tapped out Shannon Gugerty at 3:56 of the third round and won the Submission of the Night.

The fighters each earned a $65,000 bonus for their efforts.

The event itself, the first UFC in Illinois, drew a crowd of 15,359 and a gate of $2.8 million, according to UFC president Dana White.

The live gate for UFC 90 bested the previous record at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont held by 1997's Wrestlemania 13.
