TUF 16 Finale Attendance and Gate


The Ultimate Fighter returned to Las Vegas on Saturday night, although it found a new home in the process.

The TUF 16 Finale marked the move from the reality series’ longtime finale home at The Palms over to The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino due to a spat between UFC president Dana White and Palms officials.

TUF’s move to The Joint accounted for a draw of 2,500 fans, according to UFC officials, and a live gate of $318,525.

That attendance is slightly higher than the past few events at The Palms, which typically drew between 1,600 and 2,100 fans.

The gates at The Palms, however, were typically higher than the joint, usually ringing the till at about $100,000 to $150,000 more.

Roy Nelson capped the TUF 16 Finale with a brutal knockout of Matt Mitrione in the main event, while U.S. Army Combatant instructor Colton Smith captured the honors as the season’s Ultimate Fighter.
