UFC Fight Night 107 attendance, gate and bonuses

March 18, 2017

The UFC announced post-fight bonuses for Jimi Manuwa, Gunnar Nelson, Marlon Vera and Marc Diakiese for UFC Fight Night 107 Saturday afternoon from London.  The event drew 15,761 for a gate of $2,015,777.

The event took place at The O2 Arena in London.  The main event featured Jimi Manuwa and Corey Anderson.  Manuwa won via KO and drew one of the four $50K bonuses.

Marlon Vera drew another bonus for his third-round finish of Brad Pickett.  Perhaps a bittersweet bonus since Pickett was seemingly ahead on the scorecards in his retirement match.

Gunnar Nelson won via submission over Alan Jouban and Marc Diakiese knocked out Teemu Packalen for the other bonuses.  Notably Packalen earned a POTN bonus at UFC Fight Night 84, the last UFC event in London before today.

The attendance and gate were announced post-fight.  It was the ninth UFC event in London and the first since February 2016 when Michael Bisping defeated Anderson Silva.  The event outdrew the February 2016 event in gate but not attendance.

Payout Perspective:

The Fight Pass only show was well-attended by the London as this UFC event was third all-time out of 9 in terms of attendance and gate for the arena.  It shows the great support for the UFC overseas especially in the U.K.
