When the Pepsi Center in Devner, Colorado played host to UFC 150 over the weekend, UFC President Dana White had little to be upset about with the quality of the evening’s fights, but unfortunately the same cannot be said about the evening’s live attendance. The event garnered only $650,000 in ticket sales, with 15,008 attendees.
“This was the worst gate, for a Pay Per-View, since 2007, without a doubt,” said the flustered UFC President. According to White, “It’s been a bad summer for this place with the Dark Knight (Rises) shootings and all the wildfires,” he continued, “ Once all that stuff was going down, we thought, ‘it’s not going to be a good gate here.”
While the numbers are disappointing, it would seem that it wasn’t all too unexpected from the Zuffa brass.
