Last night, MMA fans were treated to UFC Fight Night Auckland, which was headlined by Dan Hooker scoring a split decision win over Paul Felder in the main event.
The UFC, as usual, handed out some bonus money for the event, with the main event bout between Hooker and Felder picking up “Fight Of The Night,” which earned both fighters an additional $50,000 each. Two “Performance Of The Night” bonuses were handed out as well to Jimmy Crute (who defeated Michal Oleksiejczyk) and Priscila Cachoeira (who defeated Shana Dobson), with both of them picking up $50,000 each. The UFC handed out a total of $200,000 at the event, which is the majority for most of the UFC’s events.
There was a sellout crowd at UFC Fight Night Auckland as well, with a grand total of 10,025 people checking out the event, which brought in a total gate of $1,239,625 USD.
Up next for the UFC is UFC Fight Night Norfolk, which will see Joseph Benavidez and Deiveson Figueiredo battle in the main event for the vacant UFC Flyweight Title.
