UFC Copenhagen attendance, gate and bonuses

September 29, 2019

UFC Copenhagen took place on Saturday with Jarod Cannonier stopping local favorite Jack Hermansson in the second round of the night’s main event.  Cannonier took home led the performance bonus winners with upset victory over the higher-ranked middleweight.

In addition, Ovince St. Preux scored another Von Flue (shoulder) choke and earned a Performance bonus.  Also, John Phillips and Jack Shore scored $50,000 Performance Bonuses for their respective stoppages.

It was the company’s first appearance in Copenhagen and the event drew a sellout with 12,767 for a gate of $1.6 million at the Royal Arena in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Payout Perspective:

The big turnout for the company’s debut in the country reflects the continued advancement in popularity of the sport around the world.  It helps to have fighters in the region on the card that builds interest for the event.  Its clear that tapping new regions during its Fight Night events is a great way to build the sport and gain traction when promoting its brand.
