“The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung had an excellent night on Tuesday night. Not only did he choke out Dustin Poirier in the fourth round of an incredible fight, he earned an extra $80,000 for doing so as well.

UFC President Dana White, who was watching at home for the first time in 11 years as President of the UFC, Tweeted the $40,000 bonus winners following the event, with Jung earning double honors for “Fight of the Night” and “Submission of the Night.”

He and Poirier rightfully took “Fight of the Night,” and set the standard for “Fight of the Year” honors for 2012 in the process. The fourth round D’Arce choke for Jung, which came after he dropped Poirier with a flying knee, was simply an incredible finish to an awesome fight.

The $40,000 bonus for “Knockout of the Night” went to Tom Lawlor. It was partially by default, as his 40 second stoppage of Jason MacDonald was the only knockout or TKO on the card, but it was still well earned. A well placed left hand to MacDonald’s jaw rocked him, and Lawlor dropped him with a right behind the ear to finish him off.
