A tight finish in a rematch helped Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller earn Fight of the Night honors, UFC officials announced after UFC on FOX 21 on Saturday night.

Miller defeated Lauzon via split decision (29-28, 28-29, 29-28) to kick off the main card portion of the card. Miller also defeated Lauzon in their previous meeting at UFC 155, which earned them Fight of the Night honors as well.

For Lauzon, it was the 14th post-fight bonus of his career.

The night's additional two Performance of the Night bonuses went to Paige VanZant and Demian Maia.

VanZant impressively knocked out Bec Rawlings with a kick to the head in the second round, while Maia made quick work of Carlos Condit in the main event with a first-round submission win.

Each person who was awarded a bonus received an extra $50,000.
