UFC Fight Night 33 attendance, gate and bonuses
December 7, 2013
The attendance drew 11,393 for a live gate of $1.785 million as announced at the post-fight press conference. UFC Fight Night 33 occurred at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre in Australia.
The bonuses were $50,000 each and were no-brainers. Mark Hunt and Antonio Silva earned the $50,000 Fight of the Night Bonus and Shogun Rua won the KO of the night bonus. While the prelim fight between Takeya Mizugaki and Nam Phan fight were early contenders for FOTN and was rerun on the main card just before the main event, Hunt-Silva blew away the crowd, viewers and people on twitter with their fight.
If nothing else, the last fight of the night was well worth wading through the 5 plus hours of fights. The attendance figure shows that there are many fight fans down under. Of course, many supported Mark Hunt and other local fighters on the card.
