Dana White had announced prior to last night’s WEC 48: Aldo Vs Faber event that the winners of the bonus awards would take home $65,000 – a record amount for the promotion. So who were the lucky winners?
It’ll come as no surprise to anyone who tuned into the live prelim show on Spike TV that the epic three round battle between Leonard Garcia and Chan Sung Jung claimed the ‘Fight Of The Night’ award.
Meanwhile Manny Gamburyan picked up the ‘Knockout Of The Night’ after producing a stunning upset win over former featherweight champion Mike Brown.
There was no repeat of the five round fight of the year performance in the Henderson Vs Cerrone rematch, but Ben Henderson’s first round guillotine choke earned him the ‘Submission Of The Night’ honors.
At the post-fight press conference Dana White also announced that the attendance for the event was a record 14,144 which brings with it an expected gate of $1 million.
