WEC 42 Sells 1,640 Tickets

Compare the tickets sold at WEC 42 to the amount sold at WEC 41, the Miguel Torres vs. Brian Bowles event brought in only 6.2% of what the Urijah Faber vs. Mike Brown rematch did.

Of course, WEC 41 was held at Sacramento's Arco Arena, which accommodated 12,706 fans as opposed to the Joint in Las Vegas, which has capacity of 4,000.

According to the official numbers released Tuesday by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, WEC 42 sold 1,640 tickets for a gate of $175,835. 442 tickets were given away and 870 were left unsold.

Still, it was a huge improvement over the WEC's previous show in Vegas at WEC 37 last December, which sold 643 tickets for $90,125.

WEC 41 was the promotion's all-time best in gate and ticket sales, pulling in 10,110 paid for a revenue of $815,415.
