UFC Vegas 21 had no shortage of actions — or fouls — leading to four Performance of the Night bonuses. Dan Ige, Ryan Spann, Davey Grant and Matthew Semelsberger were each presented with $50,000 bonuses for their respective knockouts or TKOs.

Spann mushed Misha Cirkunov in Saturday's co-main event. "Superman" dropped the Canadian twice before finishing with ground-and-pound.
Ige starched Gavin Tucker with a knockout just 22-seconds into round one; however, it was not evening's fastest finish. Semelsberger opened the card's preliminary portion with a 16-second KO of Jason Witt.
And Grant finished Martinez with a KO in a competitive two-round scrap.
