UFC 138 Attendance Figures and Bonus Winners


“UFC 138: Munoz vs. Leben” went down tonight at the LG Arena at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham England. The Spike TV card aired stateside via tape-delay and featured a main event between middleweights, Mark Munoz and Chris Leben in the UFC’s first ever 5-round non-title fight.

While the main event was scheduled for a full twenty-five minutes it took Mark Munoz just ten to force the corner of Leben to halt the action due to a vicious cut above that eye that left Chris unable to see.

The judges had an easy man card to handle, as all of the evenings main card fights ended at the hands of the fighters in the cage and as such, the UFC handed out $70,000 bonus amounts.

Che Mills earned the night’s “Knockout of the Night” award, Terry Etim picked up the “Submission of the Night” bonus and that leaves Barao and Pickett as the evenings “Fight of the Night” recipients.

As mentioned earlier this week, officials from the LG Arena in Birmingham, England announced that UFC 138 broke all love gate records previously held in the Arena’s 20 year history. The official attendance according to UFC officials at the post-fight press conference was marked at 10,823 attendees for a total gate of $1.5 million.

    • AJ says:

      They said something earlier in regard to posting results and such before everything aired and to beware because it would contain spoilers. And maybe… don’t click on it if you don’t want to know?

    • Ryan M says:

  3. Dan Walker says:

  4. JBJ sucks says:

    Barao and Pickett for fight of the night is bs. It should have been leben vs munoz.

    • MMFT says:

      nawwwwww. leven and munoz was exciting, but barao and pickett were freaking crazy from start to finish. it was one of the best fights I’ve seen this year. munoz should win most brutal ground and pound of the night though because he was smashing some face with those shots… almost made me sick.

  5. mike f says:

    To bad that Lebanese got cut and they had to stop. Was an entertaining fight.

  6. aaxatonio says:
