UFC Fight Night 122 took place in Shanghai, China and was a success from the box office as the company reports a sellout.  In the main event, Kelvin Gastelum earned a Performance Bonus with a 1st round KO over Michael Bisping.

In addition, Li Jingliang, Zabit Magomedsharipov and Song Yadong earned the $50,000 bonuses for their Performances which all ended in stoppages.  There was no Fight of the Night bonus.  The company made the announcement post-event.

In addition, the UFC announced the event as a sellout with a reported 15,128 fans in attendance.  No gate was announced for the event.  The event took place at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.  According to this, ,the maximum capacity is 18,000 altho0ugh the 15,000 may be a sellout based on the configuration for the event.

Payout Perspective:

A good turnout for the promotion’s first event in China.  The Gastelum KO know brings concern about Bispimg’s health.  But one has to wonder where this was prior to signing him on as a replacement.  Recall, the event was to be headlined by Gastelum and Anderson Silva.  Still, the event featured many Chinese fighters including bonus winner Jingliang.
