The final figures are in and the paid attendance for last Saturday’s UFC 91 topped out at 10,845. The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s Executive Director Keith Kizer reported the figures earlier this afternoon.
Immediately following the event Dana White announced the live gate and attendance figure’s of $4.8 million and 14,272 at the MGM Grand. The extra 3,427 spectators received complimentary tickets to the event billed as the “Biggest Fight in UFC History.”
While the fight card had been expected to draw a big gate, Dana White had proclaimed the event was expected to bring in 1.2 million pay-per-view buys. However, unlike attendance and fighter pay scale figure, pay-per-view numbers are not required to be released to the general public.
