WEC Bonus Awards are three separate cash bonuses usually awarded to four fighters after each WEC event, based on internal decision by WEC management. More/fewer bonuses have been awarded at some events, especially when no knockouts or submissions occurred.

  • Fight of the Night is awarded to the two fighters who delivered the most impressive fight on the card.[1]
  • Knockout of the Night is awarded to the fighter with the most impressive knockout/technical knockout.[2]
  • Submission of the Night is awarded to the fighter with the most impressive submission.[3]
