UFC business notes

Yahoo! is reporting that the UFC sold 7,850 tickets for this past weekend’s UFC 72 card in Belfast, Ireland, for a total house of $1.2 million. I’m not sure how legitimate those claims are because there have been a lot of reports that tickets didn’t sell as well as expected and that the house had to be “papered.”

The payouts for last Tuesday’s UFC Fight Night 10 card have been made available by the state of Florida. These figures do not include deductions or bonuses:

Spencer Fisher ($26,000) defeated Sam Stout ($6,000)

Jon Fitch ($36,000) defeated Roan Carneiro ($5,000)

Drew McFedries ($14,000) defeated Jordan Radev ($5,000)

Thiago Tavares ($10,000) defeated Jason Black ($6,000)

Forrest Petz ($8,000) defeated Luigi Fioravanto ($8,000)

Tamdan McCory ($8,000) defeated Pete Spratt ($12,000)

Gleison Tibau ($10,000) defeated Jeff Cox ($3,500)

Anthony Johnson ($6,000) defeated Chad Reiner ($3,000)

Nate Mohr ($6,000) defeated Luke Caudillo ($3,000)
