14,272 Attend UFC 91 For $4.8 Million Live Gate

MGM Grand Garden ArenaA near-sellout crowd of 14,272 fans packed the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday night for UFC 91: Couture vs. Lesnar, which was highlighted by Brock Lesnar’s second-round TKO of former title-holder Randy Couture in the evening’s main event.

The event recorded a live gate of $4.8 million, which is good for the third most lucrative UFC event ever in Nevada behind UFC 66, which was headlined by Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz, and UFC 79, which featured Georges St-Pierre vs. Matt Hughes and Chuck Liddell vs. Wanderlei Silva.

UFC President Dana White announced both figures at the post-UFC 91 press conference.
