UFC 238 attendance, gate and bonuses

June 9, 2019

UFC 238 drew 16,038 fans for a gate of $2,034,387.49.  The attendance and gate were announced post-event.  The event took place at the United Center in Chicago in what is becoming the annual event taking place in the city.

UFC 225 last June drew 18,177 for a gate of $2.55 million.    The event featured Robert Whittaker taking on Yoel Romero for the middleweight title.

Saturday night’s event had two title fights as well as Donald Cerrone taking on Tony Ferguson.

The bonus winners for Saturday night were Henry Cejudo, Valentina Shevchenko, Tony Ferguson and Donald Cerrone.  Ferguson and Cerrone earned FOTN while Cejudo and Shevchenko won Performance bonuses for their respective stoppages.

Payout Perspective:

A good night of fights and Henry Cejudo showed that despite the antics, he is one of the elite fighters in the sport.  Shevchenko showed that she may have the 125 title for a while with the vicious KO of Jessica Eye.
