UFC attendance and bonuses (only 3 $50K bonuses awarded)

November 19, 2017

The UFC announced the attendance, gate and bonuses for Saturday’s Fight Night 121 from Sydney, Australia.  Only 3 bonuses were handed out.

The bonus winners were Tai Tuivasa, Nik Lentz and Damien Brown.  Tuivasa and Lentz drew the Performance bonuses of $50,000 each while Brown earned Fight of the Night honors.  Brown’s opponent, Frank Camacho, missed weight and was not eligible for a bonus.

In addition, the event drew 10,021 at the Qudos Bank Arena in Sydney.  No live gate was announced.  According to this, the seating capacity is 18,2000 for the venue.

Payout Perspective:

Ryan Benoit could have been awarded the other $50,000 bonus for his head kick KO of Ashkan Mokhtarian but the UFC decided to just award Brown and keep the other $50,000.  The attendance is good for an event that had little interest unless you are a hardcore UFC fan.

Got something to say?
