Who Has The Most Knockout Of The Night Bonuses In UFC History?

3.  Lyoto Machida – Four ‘Knockout Of The Night’ Bonuses


Machida is often praised for being hard to hit, but when the time comes to return fire the Karate master has proven himself to do so with devastating effect as proven by the four ‘Knockout Of The Night’ awards he’s claimed during his UFC career.

It took him until his sixth UFC fight to earn his first bonus, but it was worth the wait as he KO’d Thiago Silva in brutal fashion. Getting a taste for it he then went on to hand Rashad Evans an impromptu nap on the canvas in his next fight to claim the light-heavyweight title.

Two years later came an almost Hollywood scripted moment when he KO’d Randy Couture with crane kick, and in his middleweight debut at the tail end of last year he earned another bonus after a stunning head kick finish against Mark Munoz.

Ross launched MMA Insight (previously FightOfTheNight.com) in 2009 as a way to channel his passion for the sport of mixed martial arts. He's since penned countless news stories and live fight reports along with dozens of feature articles as the lead writer for the site, reaching millions of fans in the process.
