TUF Finale 25 attendance, gate and bonuses

July 7, 2017

Justin Gaethje’s UFC debut was likely one of the best in the history of the company.  Gaethje drew two bonuses for his main event stoppage of Michael Johnson at the TUF 25 Finale Friday night at the T-Mobile Arena.

Gaethje drew a Performance bonus and along with Michael Johnson earned Fight of the Nihgt.  Tecia Torres also drew a Performance bonus for her submission of Juliana Lima.

The UFC announced that the TUF 25 Finale drew 6,308 fans for a live gate of $432,495.  In comparison, the TUF 23 Finale last year drew 8,115 fans for a live gate of $736,408.  Last year there were 3 events during International Fight wheras this week there are only 2.  TUF 24 Finale in December was held at The Palms and had a very small crowd of 1,800.

The bonuses, attendance and gate were announced post fight by UFC officials.

Payout Perspective:

Not a big showing for tonight’s event but those that were in attendance witnessed the reason why Justin Gaethje is one of the most-exciting fighters around.  Granted, his style is not long for this sport, but Gaethje and Johnson put on one of the best fights this year.

Got something to say?
