Ben Henderson and Clay Guida fought furiously for three full rounds and were awarded Fight of the Night honors at Saturday's UFC on FOX 1 event at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif.

In the scrappy fight, Henderson defeated Guida by unanimous decision to become the next challenger in line for champion Frankie Edgar.

All post-fight award winners on Saturday earned a $65,000 bonus.

New heavyweight champion Junior dos Santos edged out DaMarques Johnson for the Knockout of the Night award. In just 64 seconds, Dos Santos connected on an overhand right to drop Cain Velasquez and finish with a flurry of punches. Johnson was the other (T)KO candidate with a crushing left uppercut on Clay Harvison in 94 seconds. Robert Peralta also technically won via (T)KO but the finish came about controversially when an intentional headbutt floored opponent Mackens Semerzier.

For Submission of the Night, featherweight Ricardo Lamas attached a tight arm-triangle choke to submit Cub Swanson in the third round. The was one other submission finish on the card, a D'arce choke applied by featherweight Dustin Poirier over Pablo Garza.

According to UFC president Dana White, UFC on FOX 1 drew a gate of $1.1 million and 14,019 in attendance.

Intentional headbutt? For cereal? Ray Hui is a hack. That's a statement of fact that requires no qualifier nor reasoning.

I would have given the KO to DaMarques (even though I think he's kind of a douche), but fair enough.

Don't hate on Ray but yeah no need to call that intentional, both guys were swinging recklessly at the same time.

Yeah, no hate, everyone makes mistakes, I was just making a point about over the top statements with no explanations.

I suspect he was typing too fast and left off "un".

That would make more sense. And make me a total douche. So it's all coming together.
