Tom Atencio: ‘I’m kind of between a rock and a hard place’ with third Affliction event
(mmamania.com)
” … I’m just trying to figure out what we’re doing, that’s all. I’m kind of between a rock and a hard place. The fans and the media treat me like I’m on my tenth show. I’m on my third show, and I’m just trying to make sure I don’t make the same mistakes that I made in the other events. If there’s things I’ve made mistakes on I try to fix them. I’m trying to be methodical about everything. I’m just trying to make sure that whatever we do, we’re doing it right.

WEC 39 Fighter Bonuses
(mmaweekly.com)
The bonuses for the event were confirmed to MMAWeekly.com by WEC officials following the bouts, with Knockout of the Night, Submission of the Night and Fight of the Night getting rewarded. The Submission of the Night seemed like a no brainer as WEC champion, Mike Brown, won his title defense by way of head and arm choke and will now also take home a $7500 bonus as well. Following a brutal :18 second knockout, Damacio Page took home the KO of the Night bonus for his performance defeating top ten bantamweight, Marcus Galvao, who had to leave the cage on a stretcher after the fight. The Fight of the Night bonus landed in the hands of the last two 170lb fighters expected to compete in the WEC as the promotion has now done away with the division, with Johny Hendricks and Alex Serdyukov, each earning the extra payday.
