The Nevada State Athletic Commission has released official attendance and gate figures for this past Saturday’s UFC 92 event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
And while the figures do not contradict the total attendance of 14,166 fans and gate figure of $3,468,440 offered by UFC President Dana White to the media during the post-fight press conference for the event, they do provide an interesting detail that left out.
According to NSAC records obtained by FiveOuncesOfPain.com, 4,465 fans of the 14,166 total in attendance were at the event courtesy of complementary tickets. That means that of the 14,166 total attendees, only 9,701 actually paid for their tickets.
Despite distributing nearly one third of the tickets for UFC 92 on a complementary basis, the final house for the event still rates as one of the UFC’s largest in Nevada history.
