TUF 27 Finale attendance, gate and bonuses

July 7, 2018

UFC reports the TUF Finale 27 attendance, gate and bonuses.

The numbers were disclosed post-event.  The bonuses went out to Israel Adesanya, Luis Pena, Alex Caceres and Martin Bravo.  Each earned $50,000 bonuses.  Caceres and Bravo earned Fight of the Night while Adesanya and Pena drew Performance Bonuses.  Adesanya scored the rare feat of earning a performance bonuses without a stoppage.

TUF 27 was a sell-out of 2,123 as it is gravitating to a smaller venue each year.  The intimate gathering at the Pearl Theatre in Vegas drew a gate of $293,615.50.

Payout Perspective:

As happens with FS1 televised events, the pacing of the fights was very slow.  The fights were ok with the TUF winners being crowned and Adesanya putting on a great performance against Brad Tavares.

Got something to say?
