The WEC awarded four fighters an additional $10,000 each for their special performances at WEC 40 on Sunday night. Bantamweight champ Miguel Torres won a unanimous decision over the surprisingly-impressive Takeya Mizugaki. Their 25 minutes of action earned each of them Fight of the Night honors.

Anthony Njokuani pocketed an additional $10 grand for Knockout of the Night with his 2ndRound TKO of Bart Palaszewski.

Finally, to nobody’s surprise, Rani Yahyawon took home Submission of the Night honors with his rear-naked choke of Eddie Wineland in the 1stRound of their contest.

WEC 40 was held at the UIC Pavilion in Chicago, Illinois.
