Officials initially announced an estimated attendance of 11,089 for a live gate of $2.942 million.

UFC 160, the promotion’s annual Memorial Day weekend card, took place May 25 at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and featured a heavyweight title fight between champion Cain Velasquez and Antonio Silva. Velasquez dominated “Bigfoot” to earn a quick first-round TKO for his first defense of the title he reclaimed from Junior dos Santos in December at UFC 155.

UFC 146 drew 14,674 fans for a live gate of more than $3.4 million.

For UFC 160, 10,075 tickets were sold, while 2,305 “comp” tickets were issued. A total of 1,403 tickets went unsold. The average paid ticket price was $216.97.

The MGM Grand Garden Arena’s all-time top UFC gates as compiled by include:

  1. UFC 148 (Silva vs. Sonnen II): $6,901,655 gate (15,104 attendance)
  2. UFC 66 (Liddell vs. Ortiz II): $5,397,300 (13,761 attendance)
  3. UFC 91 (Couture vs. Lesnar): $4,815,675 (14,272)
  4. UFC 71 (Liddell vs. Jackson): $4,304,000 (14,728)
