Campuzano taking girl to dinner with 10k bonus from WEC 46

Thursday, January 21, 2010

Fighting in the evening’s very first bout at “WEC 46: Varner vs. Henderson” earlier this month, WEC bantamweight Will Campuzano had to wait several hours to find out his rousing unanimous-decision win over Coty “Ox” Wheeler had been named the evening’s “Fight of the Night.”

But after making just $6,000 for the fight, it was certainly worth the wait to learn he was being given another $10,000 for the award.

But despite the influx of cash, Campuzano recently told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) for The Dallas Morning News that he only has one small plan for the cash.

“I’m taking my girl out to dinner,” Campuzano said. “That’s all I got for right now.”

It’s a response that should perhaps be expected. The even-keeled brawler showed almost no emotion in the cage on fight night, even as the action-packed bout unfolded.

“That’s typical of the way I fight,” Campuzano said. “One promoter I used to fight for said I always look bored in there.”
