March 4, 2018

UFC 222 drew 12,041 for a gate of $1,367, 672 according to the UFC.  The event took Saturday at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. The last event in Vegas was UFC 219 in December which featured Cris “Cyborg” Justino and Holly Holm.  The event drew 13,561 for a gate of $1,760,628.74.

The bonuses were awarded to Brian Ortega, Alexander Hernandez, Sean O’Malley and Andre Soukhamthath each earned $50,000 fight-night bonuses at Saturday’s UFC 222 event.

The event numbers were announced post-event.

Payout Perspective:

The event was part of a broader promotion for Las Vegas on a big sports weekend in the city.  While the event did not do as well in December, the UFC was able to save it once Max Holloway was unable to go due to injury.  The good news, is that fight fans saw the coming out party for Brian Ortega who was the first to knockout Frankie  Edgar.
