UFC 232 attendance, gate and bonuses

December 29, 2018

Aaron Bronsteter of TSN Sports tweeted out the attendance and gate for Saturday night’s UFC 232.  Despite the short notice, the event was a sell out with 15,862 for a gate of over $2 million.

To be specific, the gate was $2,066,604.  The Fight of the Night went to Chad Mendes and Alexander Vokanovski.  The Performance Bonuses went to Ryan Hall and Amanda Nunes.

The event was moved earlier this week from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas to The Forum in Inglewood, California for Jon Jones.

Notably, UFC 199 drew 15,587 for a live gate of $2,1687,675 in June 2016.  The fight featured last minute replacement Michael Bisping winning the middleweight title from Luke Rockhold.

Payout Perspective:

It was a good night at the gate for the UFC.  They were on par with UFC 199 with little time for ticket sales and promotion in the area.  We will see what the CSAC breakdown of tickets (and comps) says, but tonight’s numbers were impressive considering the last-minute change.  Hall had an impressive submission over the BJ Penn and of course Nunes solidified her legacy as the UFC’s best women’s fighter by KO’ing Cyborg in the first round.
