earned a live gate of $3,428,775 and was attended by 14,674
spectators, according to Keith Kizer, executive director for the
Nevada Athletic Commission.
Kizer informed Sherdog.com of the figures on Wednesday afternoon,
noting that 11,428 attendees paid for their tickets, while 3,246
received complimentary admission. A total of 276 tickets went

The May 26 event took place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las
Vegas and was headlined by Junior dos

former titlist Frank Mir. Dos
Santos retained his belt in impressive fashion, knocking Mir down
with a straight right hand and then finishing the job with a hard
hammer fist in round two.
The all-heavyweight main draw also saw ex-champion Cain
Velasquez earn a bloody technical knockout over Antonio
Silva, as Velasquez badly lacerated “Pezao” with
ground-and-pound en route to the first-round stoppage. Roy Nelson,
Miocic and Stefan
Struve also picked up wins by finishing Dave Herman,
Rosario and Lavar
