WEC 51 Bonuses: Cerrone, Varner, Torres, and Roop Earn Awards

Donald Cerrone, Jamie Varner, Miguel Torres, and George Roop each scored $10,000 bonuses for their performances at Thursday’s “WEC 51: Aldo vs. Gamburyan” event.

Cerrone and Varner delivered another “Fight of the Night” in the sequel to their first meeting from 2009, as the lightweight rivals went toe-to-toe for much of three exciting rounds before Cerrone earned a unanimous decision win.

The former bantamweight champ Torres rebounded from back-to-back losses and earned WEC 51’s “Submission of the Night” with a second-round rear naked choke of Charlie Valencia.

Roop scored a highlight-reel head kick KO of “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung to claim the card’s “Knockout of the Night” award.
