Mike Brown, Urijah Faber, Seth Dikun and Jose Aldo all took home cash bonuses of $10,000 for their performances during last night’s WEC 41 card that was held at the ARCO Arena in Sacramento, California.
Brown and Faber’s featherweight title clash earned both men “fight of the night” honors, Aldo was awarded with “knockout of the night” for his gravity defying flying double knee over Cub Swanson and Dikun grabbed the “submission of the night” with his spectacular flying triangle over Rolando Perez.
Jens Pulver was the highest paid fighter of the night when it was all said and done, bringing in a total of $31,253 for his first round submission loss to Josh Grispi, whose total payroll of $17, 381 included a $9,000 win bonus.
Surprisingly, Manny Gamburyan was the second highest paid fighter of the night in his undercard WEC debut against John Franchi.
