UFC 209 attendance, gate and bonuses

March 4, 2017

Darren Elkins, Iuri Alcantara, David Teymur and Lando Vannata earned bonuses at UFC 209 on Saturday night from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The bonuses, attendance and gate were announced post-fight.

Elkins scored a Performance of the Night with a come from behind victory over Mirsad Bektic. Alcantara also fought back from adversity and scored a second-round stoppage via kneebar over Luke Sanders. The Fight of the Night went to recently promoted co-main event David Teymur and Lando Vannata.
In addition, the event drew 13,150 in attendance for a gate of $2.385,230.

Payout Perspective:

Cynthia Cavillo or Alistair Overeem could have earned a performance bonus as well for their respective stoppages. The attendance is the lowest out of the 4 PPV cards held at T-Mobile. Then again, it did not have a big name card to market. Recall, 200, 202 and 207 all had major attractions (i.e., Brock Lesnar, Diaz-McGregor, Rousey) at T-Mobile.

    Good numbers. Attendance isn’t really very relevant it is the actual revenue that is most important.

    How many boxing gates did $2.38m this year? Haha.

    Good numbers for the attendance and the gate, better than I thought it would be for a sub par card. Will be interesting to see what the PPV numbers are. I literally know no one who watched it.

    The headliner was good, that’s what sells. The ppv numbers will be respectable. I know plenty of people who watched it.

    They should be happy they managed to earn the gate that they did. Bad card, bad event. Definitely need to do way better.

Got something to say?
