UFC 240 attendance, gate and bonuses

July 28, 2019

UFC 240 took place Saturday night in Edmonton, Alberta Canada.  The promotion awarded its $50,000 bonuses which included two Performance Bonuses and a Fight of the Night.

Deiveson Figueiredo’s victory over Alexandre Pantoja drew Saturday’s Fight of the Night as the two flyweights put on a show on the Prelims which aired on ESPN.  In addition, Geoff Neal won a Performance Bonus for his second-round stoppage over Niko Price.  Also, Hakeen Dawodu stopped Yoshinori Horie in the last minute of the final round of their fight on the Prelims.

The event drew $1.4 million (U.S) and 12,144 from Rogers Place.   The numbers were announced post-fight by the UFC.

The main event saw Max Holloway successfully defend his Featherweight title against Frankie Edgar.

Payout Perspective:

The Prelims produced a lot of the action Saturday with Figueiredo-Pantoja and Dawodu’s KO.  The attendance and gate were very good although we don’t know the amount of comps for the event.  Still, a pretty nice showing from the Canadian crowd.

Got something to say?
