UFC 200 sets gate record in Nevada

July 9, 2016

UFC 200 set a record gate for the UFC in the state of Nevada with $10.7 million.  The event drew 18,202 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The attendance and gate were announced at the UFC post-fight press conference.  The gate surpasses December’s UFC 194 which drew $10.1 million at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.  We should note that the estimated attendance for Conor-Aldo was 16,516.

Bonuses went to Amanda Nunes, Cain Velasquez, Joe Lauzon and Gegard Mousasi.  All were Performance Bonuses and there were no Fight of the Night Bonus.  Each won $50,000 bonuses.

Payout Perspective:

Although UFC 100 drew $100K bonuses and UFC 129 drew $129K bonuses there were no $200K bonuses.  As for the gate, the record is due in part to the high ticket prices to get in.  Certainly, it was another great three days of fight culminating with a big event that drew a record number of fans paying premium prices to break the gate record.

    $500 for upper level tix will do that, weak night of fights

    This would have been a bigger gate if Connor was on the card. It’s hard to believe that UFC 200 was not sold out.

    i dont see anything negative about this one, seems to have sold well, seems to have a high attendance. Lets be honest and real about where UFC is now, this is about the best they can do in the USA and still make big profit. This is supposed to have been the best UFC card ever, so this is an indicator of where that organization is now in the USA.

    Pretty good gate. Just under what pac vs marquez 4 generated.

    Not THAT good.

    If less than 20,000 fanboys show up for an event that cost millions of dollars to set up and promote, I’d say the result was pretty underwhelming.

Got something to say?
