Every fighter likes getting a little something extra when their performance stood out on a card, and much like the UFC has instituted in their promotion, World Series of Fighting has decided to institute a bonus program as well.
Following a successful debut show in 2012, the fledgling promotion decided to kick off 2013 by rewarding those that stood out on their first card.
A “Knockout of the Night” bonus went to Anthony Johnson, while the “Submission of the Night” award was handed to JZ Cavalcante for his performance over T.J. O’Brien.
The promotion also handed out two “Performance of the Night” checks to Marlon Moraes, for his upset victory over former WEC champion Miguel Torres, as well as Tyrone Spong, who made a successful MMA debut with a knockout over Travis Bartlett.
World Series of Fighting officials Ray Sefo and Ali Abdel-Aziz decided that the fighters on the debut show deserved bonuses after putting on a great night of fights, and hope to continue with the bonus program on future shows as well.
The next World Series of Fighting card will take place in early 2013 with an announcement coming in the next few weeks regarding scheduling and location as well as fighters expecting to appear on the show.
