UFC 172 attendance, gate and bonuses

April 26, 2014

MMA Junkie reports the gate, attendance and bonuses for UFC 172 from the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.  As announced at the post-fight press conference, the event drew 13,485 for a live gate of $2.3 million.

With its gate, UFC 172 is second to UFC 171 ($2.6M) in terms of biggest gates of 2014.  It was the first time the UFC made it to Baltimore.


The performance bonuses announced at the post-fight press conference were:

Fight of the Night:  Takanori Gomi-Isaac Valle-Flaag

Performance Bonuses:  Joseph Benavidez and Chris Beal

Each received $50,000 bonuses.

Performance Bonuses:

Certainly Danny Castillo, Luke Rockhold and Max Holloway could have been contenders for a Performance Bonus tonight.  The attendance and gate are impressive numbers for the UFC and the demand for the event seemed to be supported by the average ticket price of $290 per seat on the secondary market.

    The average verifialble ticket price is $170. The building holds 14,000 people with no floor seats. Add 1000 or so more seats for the floor and you are 1515 short of a sellout and that doesn’t include comps. Not bad for the first time in a city, why they even bother with a shit market like Baltimore is beyond me. PPV numbers will say more, we are still missing 171 so who knows when they will slip us some bs number for either of these events. Secondary market hype in Baltimore lol give me a break, everyone knows Vegas is the king of the agents.

    Jon Jones has NEVER headlined a main event is Vegas. Someone more connected prob has the real reason but a guess would be he couldn’t get a huge gate. DW seems open to the Gust rematch being in Sweden per the post fight further adding to this issue. What will PPV be? Smaller than it should be (750k) but will still be trumpeted as a success if over 400k.

Got something to say?
