Jose Aldo, Shane Roller, Cub Swanson, and John Franchi each earned a $10,000 “fight night” bonus for their performances at Wednesday’s WEC 44 event, WEC general manager Reed Harris announced at the card’s post-fight press conference.
In addition to winning the featherweight title in his win over Mike Brown, Aldo earned “Knockout of the Night” honors for his second-round knockout in the WEC 44 headliner.
Roller secured a fight-ending rear naked choke of Danny Castillo in the third round of their main card matchup to win “Submission of the Night”.
“Fight of the Night” went to Swanson and Franchi for their exciting back-and-forth striking battle that ended when Swanson forced Franchi to tap to a guillotine with just 10-seconds remaining in the bout.
