Everything is bigger in Texas, even the UFC Fight Night 22 bonuses.

After a night of exciting fights and exciting finishes, the UFC handed down $40,000 bonuses to several fighters, including two submissions of the night.

It was not a good night to be a former "Ultimate Fighter" winner on Wednesday night.

Cole Miller picked up a cool $40,000 for his rear naked choke victory over "Ultimate Fighter Season 9" winner Ross Pearson. Charles Oliveira also got $40,000, and he may have established his place in the UFC, with a rear naked choke win of his own over Efrain Escudero, another "Ultimate Fighter" winner.

HIT Squad fighter Brian Foster made quick work of veteran fighter Forrest Petz on Wednesday night, and earned the "Knockout of the Night" for his efforts.

The "Fight of the Night" bonus went to Kyle Kingsbury and Jared Hamman who went to war for three rounds, with Kingsbury getting the nod by decision. Winner or not, both men will walk out with an extra $40,000 for their efforts.
