UFC Fight Night 30 attendance, gate and bonuses

October 27, 2013

MMA Junkie reports the attendance, gate and bonuses for Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 30.   Lyoto Machida heads the list of bonus winners receiving $50,000 each.

The event from Phone4u Arena in Manchester, England had 10,355 fans for a gate of $1.5 million.  The arena’s capacity is 21,000 although we do not know the actual arena configuration and capacity yesterday.

Bonuses were the standard $50,000 and were as follows (via MMA Junkie):

Fight of the Night: Luke Barnatt vs. Andrew Craig

KO of the Night:  Lyoto Machida

Sub of the Night: Nicholas Musoke

Payout Perspective:

With Michael Bisping having to pull out of his fight with Mark Munoz, it’s likely that ticket sales/local interest suffered. Still, the attendance was the second highest for a UFC Fight Night since the events were moved to Fox Sports 1.  Machida made quick work of Munoz and it would be hard to say how he will do in the middleweight division simply because the fight ended without much occurring.

    Munoz could make 170. He needs a win desperately at 185. If he loses his next fight he stands to be cut. If he does he should make the cut to 170. Munoz is only 6feet, and I think that is being generous. He is more like 5 11 and a half.

Got something to say?
