Jonathan Goulet, Kuniyoshi Hironaka, Jason MacDonald and Demian Maia each earned $75,000 "fight night" bonuses stemming from Saturday's UFC 83 event at the Bell Centre in Montreal.

The winners and the bonus amounts were announced in a post-event press conference and confirmed by MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com).

The three fights represented by the four winners all appeared on the night's preliminary card.

Goulet and Hironaka split fight of the night honors. Hironaka nearly earned the TKO victory in the waning seconds of the first round before Goulet stormed back for a knockout in the second round. The bout kicked off Saturday's 11-fight event.

MacDonald earned the KO of the night for his victory over Joe Doerksen. MacDonald nearly ended it with an early guillotine choke. Although, Doerksen survived the first round, he didn't last even a minute in the second as MacDonald ended it with a ground-and-pound onslaught just 56 seconds into the round.

Maia picked up the submission of the night bonus for his triangle choke of Ed Herman. After locking in the submission, Herman rolled to his back and ate a series of punches before finally losing consciousness from the choke.
