UFC 129 sets records for attendance, gate and bonuses

April 30, 2011

UFC 129 set an attendance record with 55, 724 in attendance Saturday night in Toronto. The gate totaled $12.1 million ($11.5 million Canadian) according to MMA Junkie.

The records shattered the previous marks of  23,152 (UFC 124) $5,397,300 (UFC 66).

In addition, record bonuses were given to fighters tonight as the Submission, KO and Fight of the Night winners received $129,000 each (in honor of UFC 129 I suppose). A total of $516,000 of bonuses were handed out.

MMA Weekly reports the bonuses as follows:

Fight of the Night:  Mark Hominick vs. Jose Aldo

Submission of the Night: Pablo Garza for his triangle choke of Yves Jabouin.

Knockout of the Night: Lyoto Machida for his crane kick on Randy Couture.

We will have more on the big night in Payout Perspective.
