With a night full of sensational finishes at UFC Fight Night 49, you wondered who was going to be left out of the running for Performance of the Night.

Turns out there was little for the night's fantastic finishers to worry about. Rather than hand out a Fight of the Night award and two Performance bonuses, the UFC gave out four Performance of the Night.

Rafael dos Anjos, Thales Leites, Jordan Mein, and Ben Saunders are all $50,000 richer after pocketing performance bonuses in Tulsa.

Dos Anjos out his stamp on the lightweight division by knocking out former champion Ben Henderson in the first round of their main-event fight.

Leites made it four wins in a row since his return to the UFC with a second-round KO of Francis Carmont.

Mein made short work of Mike Pyle with a big left hand to the jaw.

And last but certainly not least, Saunders, in his return to the UFC, submitted Chris Heatherly via first-round submission. The sub? An omoplata, the first omoplata tapout in UFC history.
