UFC Fight Night 52 attendance and bonuses

September 20, 2014

MMA Junkie reports the attendance and bonuses for UFC Fight Night 52 from Japan.  Headliner Mark Hunt led the bonus winners in a

Bonuses of $50,000 each were as follows:

Performance bonuses: Mark Hunt and Johnny Case

Fight of the Night:  Kyung Ho Kang and Michinori Tanaka

Although Myles Jury was announced as a bonus winner, Case was awarded the $50K.  It will be interesting to see if Jury is given his bonus anyways.

The attendance at the Saitama Super Arena in Saitama, Japan was 12,395 with no gate announce.  The last reported attendance at the venue was UFC on Fuel TV 8 in March 2013 when that event drew 14,682.  There were not an official attendance number released for UFC 144 although it was estimated that 15,000 were in attendance.

Payout Perspective:

It was an entertaining night of fights which saw a lot of action and was evidence that Asia is a definite region that the UFC should expand into.  Attendance was not as good as the last two events in Japan but assuming that most of the 12K in attendance paid, the UFC was likely pleased with the turnout.
