Vitor Belfort didn't just derail Michael Bisping's UFC middleweight title hopes when he dropped Bisping with a head kick on Saturday night. He also earned himself Knockout of the Night honors.

The former UFC light heavyweight champion pocketed an extra $50,000 for his second-round finish of Bisping at UFC on FX 7 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Belfort wasn't the only one to take home some extra dough. C.B. Dollaway took a hotly contested split decision victory over Daniel Sarafian in the middleweight co-main event. Both were awarded well-earned $50K bonuses for Fight of the Night.

Ildemar Alcantara was also a bonus winner in his UFC debut. His second-round kneebar finish of Wagner Prado was good for Submission of the Night honors.
