UFC 150 Draws 13,027 Garners Attendees, Earns Only $619K Live Gate
UFC 150 took place at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, last August 11
The Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies’ Boxing Commission today released the numbers for last August’s UFC 150 event.
The UFC show drew 13,027 attendees and only earned a live gate of $619,955. Around 4,803 free tickets were given out.
UFC 150 was held at the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado, last August 11. It was headlined by a lightweight event between Benson Henderson and Frankie Edgar. Henderson defended his title and won via a unanimous decision.
UFC President Dana White expressed his disappointment over the figures and said:
“It was the worst gate since 2007 for a pay-per-view, without a doubt. We’ve been talking about it – the shootings here, the fires – it’s been a really bad summer for this place. Once all that stuff was going down, we thought, ‘It’s not going to be a good gate here.'”
UFC previous events fared well, compared to UFC 150. UFC 148 and UFC 149 each earned a live gate of nearly $7 million and $4.1 million.View Article Source »
