The final live gate and attendance numbers are in for the UFC’s first all-heavyweight card with the event drawing a total gate of $3,428,775 with 11,428 tickets purchased. According to MMAWeekly, there were 276 tickets left unsold for the May 26 show and 3,246 tickets were comped by the UFC.
The event also totaled close to 560,000 total PPV buys according to Dave Meltzer. While this is a slight drop from UFC 145, the card still comes in as the second best PPV for the UFC’s 2012 campaign.
The strong numbers will generate a sizable increase purse for heavyweight champion Junior Dos Santos, Frank Mir, and Cain Velasquez. All three of which have PPV incentives in their contracts.
