UFC Fight Night 116 attendance, gate and bonuses

September 18, 2017

UFC Fight Night 116 drew just 7,005 fans for the event at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.  UFC officials announced the attendance and gate post-event which took place Saturday night.

In addition, the $50,000 bonuses went to Mike Perry, Uriah Hall, Gregor Gillespie and Jason Gonzalez.  Perry and Hall earned Performance Bonuses while Gillespie and Gonzalez earned Fight of the Night.

The attendance at the event was the lowest for a UFC event this year with just 7,005 fans and the gate drew $396,190.  The figures were announced post-event by the UFC.

Payout Perspective:

UFC Fight Night 112 this past June in Oklahoma City had similar attendance figures but this past Saturday’s event was the lowest gates of the year.  With Canelo-GGG on the same night as well as college football, this may have been a tough sell for the UFC.  But, this is what to expect of the lower-tier Fight Night events.

    hmmm…hard to spin this one into anything positive….I think the UFC has oversaturated the market with its product and its hurting the brand

Got something to say?
