The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Friday released the official attendance and gate receipt numbers of UFC 132: Cruz vs. Faber. The numbers aren’t far off of what UFC officials announced on fight night.
UFC officials originally stated that UFC 132 on July 2 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas drew 12,947 fans for a gate of $2.3 million. The official numbers released on Friday are 13,109 and $2,304,500.
Of the 13,109 official attendance, 8,103 of those tickets were purchased, while 5,006 were complimentary (or free) tickets. Just shy of a sellout, UFC 132 left 787 tickets on the table.
