UFC 91 Gate Solid

Although it is not very likely that UFC 91: Couture vs. Lesnar will break any attendance or gate receipt records, one can say that the event was a resounding success; 14,272 attended the event at the MGM Grand Garden Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas while the gate was approximately $4.8 million – not a record by any means, but very solid numbers.

The numbers were announced at the UFC 91 post-fight press conference by UFC president Dana White; without a doubt, the current US economy had a bit to do with the event not selling out, but the UFC tried to make up for that by increasing prices slightly.  White had also predicted that UFC 91 would eclipse 1.2 million PPV buys; the actual buy numbers should be available some time this week.
