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.
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.
