WEC 48 bonuses were awarded this Saturday at the generous amount of 65k for each fighter, becoming the highest bonus payout from Zuffa to date. Manny Gamburyan, Benson Henderson, Leonard Garcia and Chan Sung each left much happier with an extra $65k on top of their contract salaries.
Manny Gamburyan pulled the”knockout of the night” off over former featherweight champ Mike Brown.
Lightweight champ Benson Henderson made an example of Donald Cerrone in the co-main event scoring an early guillotine choke at 1:57 of the first round giving Henderson the “submission of the night.”
Garcia and Yung worked hard to get their “fight of the night” bonus. Former UFC fighter Leonard Garcia and Chan “the Korean zombie” Sung went all rounds exchanging huge blows with many close finishes. The two put on a fight for the ages as Garcia edged out a split decision.
