UFC 108 Draws $1.9 Million Gate

UFC 108 sold 8,004 tickets for a gate of $1,969,670 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the Nevada athletic commission revealed Thursday.

5,314 tickets were papered and only 599 seats were left unsold at the Jan. 2 event headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Rashad Evans and Thiago Silva.

The final numbers are close to UFC president Dana White's claims at the post-fight conference of 13,255 in attendance and approximate $2 million gate.

The last time the MGM Grand played host to the UFC was at UFC 98, which was also headlined by Evans. That event drew 12,606 in attendance with 9,559 tickets sold and a gate of $3,257,350.
