UFC 220 attendance, gate and bonuses

January 20, 2018

Daniel Cormier led the list of Performance Bonuses for UFC 220. The event at the TD Garden in Boston drew a record attendance for the company in the venue.

Cormier looked impressive in a 2nd Round stoppage of Volkan Oezdemir and earned a $50,000 Performance Bonus.  In addition,  Abdul Razak Alhassan, Calvin Kattar and Shane Burgos earned the other $50,000 bonuses.  Alhassan earned his Performance Bonus with a KO of Sobah Homasi.  The Fight of the Night went to Kattar and Burgos with the Boston native earning a third-round stoppage.

There were 16.015 in attendance for a gate of $2.45 million.  The number of fans in attendance was a record for an event by the UFC at the TD Garden. UFC 118 drew a higher gate when the event featuring Frankie Edgar-BJ Penn II drew $2.8 million.

The UFC announced the information post-fight.

Payout Perspective

The number in attendance reflects the popularity of the UFC in Boston.  Two title fights also provided some interest in the card.  Still, over 16,000 for the event ensures that Boston will always be a part of the annual tour for the UFC.
