UFC on Fuel TV 7 attendance, gate and numbers

February 16, 2013

MMA Fighting reports the attendance, gate and bonuses for this afternoon’s UFC on Fuel TV 7. The event, held at the Wembley Arena in London, England,  drew 10,349 with a gate of $1.3 million.

The capacity of Wembley Arena is 12,500 although we do not know if the configuration of the arena had it at 12,500 for the event.

Bonuses for this afternoon were awarded with each receiving $50,000.

Fight of the Night: Tom Watson-Stanislav Nedkov
Submission of the Night:  Renan Barao
KO of the Night: Watson

Payout Perspective:

A Saturday afternoon of fights which picked up with Swanson-Poirer and Barao-McDonald.  James Ta Huna should receive some award for originality of entrance.  Watson doubled up in bonuses in his fight with Nedkov.  Barao executed a perfect head and arm triangle choke to tap McDonald.  Although the event drew under capacity, the attendance reflects the appeal the UFC has in other countries.

    The UK has been saying they would come out if given a title fight and better card. I think you will continue to see more of these Fuel level cards oversees as opposed to tier 2 or tier 3 US cities like Pittsburgh etc.

    According to mmafrenzy.com, they set the live gate record for Wembley Arena (previously held by Lennox Lewis vs. Oliver McCall 20 years ago).
