WEC 48 participants Ben Henderson, Manny Gamburyan, Leonard Garcia and "The Korean Zombie" Chan Sung Jung earned a massive $65k bonuses to their original fighting purse.
Ben Henderson has successfully defended his WEC Lightweight title by choking out "The Cowboy" Donald Cerrone after just two minutes into the First Round. Henderson defended his unified title and won the "Submission of Night" award, will go home to Colorado Springs with a hefty addition to his bank account.
Also, Manny Gamburyan shocked the World by finishing the former Featherweight Champion and arguably one of the best P4P fighters, Mike Brown. Gamburyan was a heavy underdog prior to the fight, but the Armenian has perfectly executed his gameplan, which helped to achieve the famous victory and the "Knockout of the Night".
Leonard Garcia and Chan Sung Jung went toe-to-toe in what could easily be The Slugfest of the Year. Two fighters tested their chin and bones during three rounds of Spike TV-aired action, to get a well earned $65k reward for their "Fight of the Night" performance.
WEC 48 bonuses are a massive $55,000 improvement from the $10k WEC 47 bonuses, which were won by Leonard Garcia, George Roop, Anthony Pettis and Joseph Benavidez.
