UFC Fight Night 46 attendance and gate

July 20, 2014

MMA Junkie reports that UFC Fight Night 46 was a sellout with an attendance of 9,500 for a gate of $1.4 million. The event took place at The O2 in Dublin, Ireland and featured Conor McGregor.

With the attendance and gate figures, it comes in second to UFC Fight Night 37 in London in terms of non-PPV events for 2014.  The last time the UFC came to Dublin, UFC 93 drew 9,369 for a gate of $1.3 million.  That card was headlined by Rich Franklin vs. Dan Henderson.

Payout Perspective:

The attendance and gate is good news for the UFC as it seeks to expand its global footprint.  Now, the UFC has a bona fide star it can market to the region in McGregor.  It should be able to build on this when it returns.  There was debate as to whether this card should have been on FOX versus Fight Pass.  Certainly, when you think of the domestic impact of putting it on network TV, McGregor would help with the marketing for the UFC.  Then again, if the UFC is seeking to build its digital network with Fight Pass and expand internationally, this card definitely helps.

    The UFC continues to rack up million dollar gates with low profile fight cards. MMA continues to expand globally.

    I hardly call a less then 10k gate a huge show, And 1.4 mill gross is far from making millions LMAO D please enlighten us on your production and business experience and give us an example breakdown of this event.

    HAHAHAHA!!!! Sal go crawl back under Arum’s ass you fag!!!

    It kills you to see these low budget fight cards turning a profit.

    I already gave you a similar breakdown for the Australian fight card. Which of course was just an educated guess- something you know nothing of, because you have zero education on the subject.

    Idiot!!

    Ahahahahahaha. Shit for brains jerks off to a 9,500 attendance card yet denies boxing’s dominance with a 80,000 gate.

    Froch-Groves 2 did 900,000 PPV buys in the UK. How many did this shitbag UFC event do in Ireland?

    Simply the facts… What you call “Global Expansion”… Boxing calls “Meh”

    Pink Pig, why talk about things you don’t understand? MMA has no PPV system as BT Sports has none for sports smh.

    That’s my point. Shit bag D always harping about revenues… Boxing trounces UFC’s international revenues.

  15. D on July 22nd, 2014 10:35 AM

    Still foaming at the mouth Topps/Samantha?

    MMA trounces boxing’s domestic revenues-which is much more important revenue wise.

    Go back to your rants.

    Ahahahahahaha! Shitbag action like domestic revenue is “more important” than international revenue.

    Green in universal little nuts. Boxing’s total revenue embarrasses UFCaca any day of the week. Froch-Groves 2 generated more in one event than the UFCaca has generated in all of Europe since the beginning of their shittu organization.

Got something to say?
