The California State Athletic Commission has made the attendance figures available for FEG’s Dynamite USA!! show that took place this past Saturday at the LA Coliseum.
Total attendance for the show was 18,340 . The paid attendance was 3,674. The total house was approximately $2.3 million in gross receipts.
Loretta Hunt from The Fight Network reported on Mauro Ranallo’s radio show earlier this week that FEG has purchased tickets from themselves (buying them at a bulk rate) and put them out on the streets to be distributed in the days leading up to the event. It looks like that number was 39,083. The number of comps (tickets that FEG didn’t have to buy in order to give away) was 13,600.
The actual turnstile count (total of number of people who attended, paid and free) was 18,340 (CSAC had someone whose sole job it was on Saturday to handle tracking the number of fans entering the Coliseum).
FEG’s reported number of over 50,000 in attendance was totally bogus.
