UFC 213 attendance, gate and bonuses

July 9, 2017

UFC 213 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada Saturday night drew a reported 12,834 for a gate of $2.4 million making it the second-best for 2017.  In addition, the UFC announced bonus of which the main event led the winners.

Robert Whittaker’s win over Yoel Romero drew the Fight of the Night while Rob Font and Chad Laprise scored bonuses for their Performances.  Each received $50,000 each.

UFC 211 in Dallas drew 17,834 for a gate of $2,662,645.  That card featured two UFC titles on the line.  UFC 213 was to have two belts on the line but Amanda Nunes pulled out early Saturday leaving the interim middleweight belt the only one on the line.

Payout Perspective:

As always, the numbers were revealed by the UFC, so no word yet on how many people took advantage of the refund offered for the loss of the main event.  For obvious reasons, last year’s UFC 200 drew a bigger gate and more in attendance (18,202 and $10,700,000).  Still, the UFC is likely happy with the attendance and gate since tickets appeared ample tickets to be available on the day of the event.
