WEC 42 Fight Of The Night & KO/Submission Bonuses


WEC 42 “Torres vs. Bowles” was live on the Versus network in the United States last night and featured the shocking upset, with Brian Bowles knocking out Miguel Torres in one round to become the new WEC Bantamweight champion. That knockout earned Bowles the knockout of the night bonus, which was in the amount of $10,000.

The fight of the night bonus honors went to both Dominick Cruz and Joseph Benavidez for their bantamweight title eliminator bout that turned out to be a crowd-pleasing battle. Each man was awarded a bonus of $10,000 for fight of the night for the bout, which Cruz won via unanimous decision after three hard-fought rounds.

And finally, the submission of the night bonus in the amount of $10,000 was awarded to Rani Yahya for his north-south choke tap-out victory over Josh Hosman in the first round of their fight, which featured the only submission on the card.
