WEC 50 bonuses and awards for 'Cruz vs Benavidez' on Versus

WEC 50: "Cruz vs. Benavidez" from the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, Nevada, is officially in the books, which means that a couple of fighters who busted their asses inside the cage are getting rewarded for it.

The promotion is cutting checks for $10,000 to each fight bonus recipient -- the same as WEC 49: "Varner vs. Shalorus" but a far cry from the 65k doled out after the "Aldo vs. Gamburyan" (A.K.A. WEC 48) pay-per-view back in April.

In addition to their base salaries, the WEC awarded bantamweight brawlers Scott Jorgensen and Brad Pickett "Fight of the Night" for their thrilling, back-and-forth war of attrition that "Young Guns" took via unanimous decision.

Undefeated lightweight phenom Maciej Jewtuszko made his WEC debut a memorable one, earning "Knockout of the Night" by sending Anthony Njokuani on a weekend cruise with Rip Van Winkle. Including last night's stoppage, "Irokez" has finished all eight of his victims.

Finally, WEC lightweight contender Anthony Pettis made a fairly convincing argument for a shot at division champion Ben Henderson after securing "Submission of the Night" against Shane Roller. "Showtime" came through in the clutch with a triangle choke just seconds before time expired.

Here are the special fight bonuses for WEC 50:

Fight of the Night — Scott Jorgensen vs. Brad Pickett
Knockout of the Night — Macjei Jewtuszko
Submission of the Night — Anthony Pettis

Again, each fighter received $10,000 extra for their performances in addition to their respective base salaries, which can be viewed by clicking here.
