This past weekend, UFC fans were treated to the UFC Fight Night Nashville card, which featured former UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis defeating Stephen Thompson by second round knockout in the main event.
The event, which hailed from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, would bring in a total attendance of 10,863 according to MMA Junkie. That 10,863 fans in attendance would bring in a total live gate of $939,095.99, just shy of a million bucks.
Four fighters would also walk away with bonus money at UFC Fight Night Nashville, also according to MMA Junkie, as the aforementioned Pettis and Randa Markos (who defeated Angela Hill) walked way with $50,000 each for Performance Of The Night. The duo of Bryce Mitchell and Bobby Moffett would get $50,000 each for Fight Of The Night, a bout that was won by Mitchell. A total of $200,000 was handed out in bonuses for the event, which is the norm for all UFC cards.
Up next for the UFC is UFC Fight Night Philadelphia on Saturday, March 30 with former WSOF Lightweight Champion Justin Gaethje and Edson Barboza in the main event. That event is going to see the main card broadcast live on ESPN, while the preliminary card will stream live on ESPN+.
