-- Anthony Njokuani (pictured) won his third knockout of the night bonus for his headkick KO of Chris Horodecki. His previous bonuses came for knockouts of Bart Palaszewski at WEC 40 and Muhsin Corbbrey at WEC 43.

--Donald Cerrone and Ed Ratcliff won fight of the night bonuses, and Brad Pickett won the submission of the night with his rarely seen Peruvian necktie win over Kyle Dietz. All of the above bonuses awarded were for $10,000 for each fighter.

-- Scott Jorgensen and Takeya Mizugaki were given a special, $5,000 bonus for their bout, which Jorgensen won in a unanimous decision.

-- It was announced tonight that former featherweight champion Mike Brown will return to action at WEC 46 on Jan. 10, 2010 against Anthony Morrison. This will be Brown's first fight since losing his belt to Jose Aldo in November. This is a card that is already jam-packed with the lightweight unification bout between Jamie Varner and Ben Henderson, and Urijah Faber's return to the cage after injuring his hands in his June loss to Brown.

-- Miguel Torres' return to action has also been announced: a March 6 bout in Columbus, Ohio. Brian Bowles will have his first title defense against Dominick Cruz, and Jens Pulver will face an unannounced opponent, as well.
