MFC 21 Salary, Gate Info

May 30, 2009

MMACanada.net has the information on attendance, gate, and select salaries for the recent Maximum Fighting Championship MFC 21 card:

The attendance totaled a sold-out crowd of 2250 spectators plus another 1000 who were stationed in the River Cree casino.
Gate: $ 212,550

Bobby Lashley earned $30,000.
Mike Cook earned $4,000.

Trevor Prangley earned $14,000 for his win over Emanuel Newton
Emanuel Newton $7,000 His Win Bonus would have been another $7,000

Marvin “Beastman” Eastman $7,000
John Alessio $6,000

“Submission of the night” award went to John Alessio. The bonus totaled $1,000.

“Knockout of the night” was awarded to Dwayne Lewis.

It is interesting to take a look at the numbers for MFC. They are a mid-level promotion at this point with an eye towards continued growth and expansion. The gate figures are good, owing a large part to MFC’s deal with the River Cree Resort. Shows like this are usually “sold shows”, which helps a lot towards viability and profitability. The MFC looks to have a paid a bit of a premium over their normal salary range to bring in Bobby Lashley, but the press they received from the former WWE champ would seem to make it a good investment.
