Thursday, November 19, 2009

LAS VEGAS–Four fighters took home $10,000 performance bonuses at WEC 44, general manager Reed Harris announced at the event’s post-fight press conference on Saturday evening.

Newly crowned featherweight champion Jose Aldo took home the Knockout of the Night bonus for his second round stoppage of three-time champion Mike Brown.

Team Takedown lightweight Shane Roller took home submission honors for his third round submission of Danny Castillo.

Fight of the Night honors went to Cub Swanson and John Franchi, who waged a three round war before Swanson cinched in a bottom of the ninth guillotine choke. Both banked an extra $10,000 for the showing.

Harris said the event’s attendance figures and box office estimate was unavailable.
