Yves Edwards took home $60,000 in post-fight bonuses following his second-round submission win over "TUF" alumnus Cody McKenzie at UFC Fight for the Troops II on Saturday.

Edwards received "Submission of the Night" honors for choking McKenzie out cold with a rear-naked choke to end their lightweight tilt. The bout also earned "Fight of the Night" commendations as well, leaving McKenzie with some extra cash too.

Melvin Guillard, who shocked many with a swift finish of Evan Dunham, world-ranked at 155 lbs, took home the "Knockout of the Night" award. Guillard stopped Dunham with a series of punches and knees less than three minutes into their main event attraction.

All of the bonuses totaled up to $30,000 each.
