UFC Fight Night 49 numbers

August 23, 2014

MMA Junkie reports that UFC Fight Night 49 in Tulsa, Oklahoma drew 7,119 and a live gate of $452,075.  The figures were announced at the post-event press conference.  In addition, Rafael dos Anjos heads the list of bonus winners for UFC Fight Night 49 on Saturday night from Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Dos Anjos scored the bonus with an upset victory via first round KO of Benson Henderson.  In addition, Jordan Mein, Thales Leites and Ben Saunders scored “Performance of the Night” bonuses.  For the second time today, no “Fight of the Night” award was given out.

(H/t:  MMA Junkie).

The attendance and gate did not reveal the number of comps.  The Bok Center, where the event was held, holds up to 19,199 although the configuration for the UFC event was not revealed.  The event outdrew UFC Fight Night 48 by 97.

Payout Perspective:

The returning Saunders showed us that the Eddie Bravo “mission control” technique works with the first ever oomaplata submission as he subbed Chris Heatherly.  The attendance for both events fared better than last weekend’s UFC Fight Night 47.  UFC FN 49’s attendance and gate is lower than June’s regional fight nights in New Mexico and San Antonio but appears to be par for the course with these events.

    Qweef can’t tell between fight night and a PPV lol.

    Jason I would t say Bravos mission control(not his anyway) allows the Oma plata to work. This was an unknown bum. For all we know he would tap to anything. Not exactly a proven commodity.
