MMA Junkie reports the attendance and bonuses from UFC Fight Night 117 in Japan.  It was the lowest-attended UFC event from Japan.

Ovince St. Preux, Gokhan Saki, Jessica Andrade and Claudia Gadelha earned $50,000 bonuses.  OSP stopped Yushin Okami in the first round via Von Flue Choke.  Gokhan Saki stopped Henrique da Silva in a wild back and forth striking match.  Saki looked like he was in trouble but landed a punch right on the button knocking da Silva down and ending the fight.  The Fight of the Night went to Jessica Andrade and Claudia Gadelha in a bloody three round affair that went to Andrade.

It was the fifth UFC event in Japan and drew 8,571 fans.

UFC 144:  Edgar-Henderson – 21,000

UFC on Fuel TV 8:  Silva-Stann – 14,682

UFC Fight Night 52: Hunt-Nelson – 12,395

UFC Fight Night 75 Barnett-Nelson – 10,137

UFC Fight Night 117:  St. Preux-Okami – 8,571

Payout Perspective:

No issues with the bonus winners as each deserved the bonus.  Andrade and Gadelha was a great affair and one of the best ever in the 115-pound women’s division.

    Yeah, even these garbage numbers are considerably better than anything boxing would put up there with bigger headliners. Haha.

    It was early in the morning which could not have helped live attendance.

    Wil hates reality. He lives on an island called delusion.
