WEC 53 bonuses and awards for 'Henderson vs Pettis' on Versus

Ufc81-bonus_medium

WEC 53: "Henderson vs Pettis" from the Jobing.com Arena in Glendale, Arizona is officially in the books, which means that a couple of fighters who busted their asses in the cage are getting rewarded for their efforts.

The promotion is cutting checks for $10,000 to each fight bonus recipient -- the same as usual for the promotion that closed its doors with a bang.

In addition to their base salaries, the WEC awarded lightweight brawlers Anthony Pettis and Ben Henderson "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling back-and-forth war of attrition that "Showtime" took via unanimous decision to win the 155-pound title.

You didn't think that Neo-like head kick was going to go unrewarded, did you?

Eddie Wineland earned himself "Knockout of the Night" by channeling his inner "Rampage" and slamming Ken Stone so hard he was reportedly out for five to 10 minutes before being carried out on a stretcher.

Finally, Shane Roller took home his "Submission of the Night" bonus by quieting resident lightweight loudmouth Jamie Varner with a rear naked choke in the very first round.

Here are the special fight bonuses for WEC 53:

Fight of the Night -- Anthony Pettis vs Ben Henderson

Knockout of the Night -- Eddie Wineland 

Submission of the Night -- Shane Roller

Again, each fighter received $10,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which we will pass along as soon as they're made available.
