UFC Fight Night 84 attendance, gate and bonuses
February 27, 2016
Michael Bisping, Anderson Silva, Scott Ashkam and Teemu Packalen received the $50,000 fight-night bonuses at UFC Fight Night 84 from London. In addition, the attendance and gate were announced for the event taking place at The O2 Arena in London.
Bisping and Silva won for Fight of the Night while Ashkam and Packalen earned Performance of the Night Bonuses.
In addition, the event drew 16,734 for a gate of $2 million. The event ranks second out of 5 UFC events at The O2 Arena. Michael Bisping was in the main event of the top-ranked event at the O2 as he faced Yoshihiro Akiyama at UFC 120. The capacity at the venue is 20,000.
The UFC’s James Elliott announced the bonuses, attendance and gate at the event’s post-fight press conference.
This was a big event due to the Anderson Silva-Michael Bisping main event. Despite being on the downside of his career, Silva is a huge draw and with the home country favorite Bisping as his opponent, this was an easy sell. The event was a huge boost for the Fight Pass platform.
