UFC 180 attendance and bonuses

November 16, 2014

MMA Junkie reports the attendance and bonuses for UFC 180 from Mexico City.  Fabricio Werdum led the bonus winners for the night.

Dana White announced attendance at 21,000 at the post-fight press conference.  No official gate was announced although White indicated that it was the “highest gross in arena history.”

The $50,000 bonus winners announced at the post-fight press conference were Fabricio Werdum, Kelvin Gastelum, Henry Briones and Guido Cannetti.  Werdum and Gastelum earned the performances of the night and Briones and Cannetti earned fight of the night.  In addition, White stated that Ricardo Lamas would also receive a bonus for his submission victory over Dennis Bermudez.

Payout Perspective:

The top two fights on the card produced the bonus winners last night.  Werdum’s knee spelled the beginning of the end for Mark Hunt and Gastelum secured a rear-naked choke over the seemingly broken Jake Ellenberger.  The Briones-Cannetti fight was also an entertaining fight and Briones won with an uppercut that downed Cannetti which eventually led to a RNC.

    Sam Soliman made $1.1M to lose his belt to Taylor at the age of 40. Not exactly a sporting spectacle. UFC desk jockeys eat steak and lobster while the Mexican undercard fighters eat street tacos. Boxing v MMA pay criminal. Australian Rules Football players make an average mean pay of $160K per annum. UFC is CREAM.

    edi, there were 4 fighters on Floyd Mayweather’s last ppv undercard that made $3,500. The least any ufc fighter is paid these days for any fight and that is factoring in that they lost is $6k.

    Nice try.

    It ended up being an exciting event, but unfortunately for the UFC the event had ALL of its momentum drained out in the Mexican mainstream media as soon as it was announced that Cain had to pull out. From then on people didn’t pay much attention to it and there was no buzz surrounding the event outside of the Mexican hardcore base. Definitely not the “historic” event that the UFC wants you to regard it as.

    UFC 100 which was the first event broadcast on Mexican Network TV had way WAY more buzz surrounding it before and in the aftermath. Now that one was a historic event with unexpected record shattering numbers. Why did they stopped broadcasting the UFC on the Network? Who the hell knows…

    The only way to have watched this event was if you had a satellite or cable subscription to the crappy ‘UFC Network’ channel (exclusive to Latin America). Which reminded me of ‘FuelTV’ in all of its craptastic glory.

    By the way, Werdum’s Spanish is excellent w/ only a slight accent. Oh and that female translator is not a native Spanish speaker, she had a weird accent and missed quite a lot of things.

    She was gross and horrible! Really UFC !!!

    I caught a hint of an Argentine accent with Werdum but I was surprised at how well he spoke – grammatically his Spanish was perfect (taking into account use of slang). He speaks a hell of a lot better than Cain, that’s for sure.
