MMA: UFC 275 sets gate takings record for sports events at Indoor Stadium – The Straits Times

SINGAPORE – The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was vindicated in its decision to turn its Singapore event into a pay-per-view (PPV), with the UFC 275 show on Sunday (June 12) attracting a sold-out crowd and generating record revenue.

Dave Shaw, the mixed martial arts (MMA) organisation’s senior vice president of international and content, shared that UFC 275 – its first PPV event in South-east Asia – attracted 10,787 spectators, with gate receipts of US$1,546,732 (S$2,146,694) which is a “sporting event gate record” at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

“It was a great night from the perspective of how the event was embraced by fans,” said Shaw. “First fight in (on the preliminary card) it was like 7.15am… and we had close to 3,000 people already in the building.”
