Anderson Silva and Chris Weidman UFC 162 staredownThe official numbers are in and UFC 162 is officially a success… at least at the box office.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission on Thursday revealed the final tally for UFC 162: Silva vs. Weidman confirming an attendance of 12,964 for gate receipts totaling $4,826,450.

UFC 162 took place on July 6 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and aired live on pay-per-view.

There were 10,157 tickets sold for UFC 162, while company officials gave away 2,807 complimentary tickets.

New UFC middleweight champion Chris Weidman made the event one for the history books, capturing the belt by knocking out Anderson Silva in the second round. While many fellow pro fighters predicted that Weidman had the ability to win the fight, the way the fight ended came as a surprise to nearly everyone.

The two will now meet in a rematch at UFC 168 on Dec. 28, again at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

UFC 162’s $4,826,450 gate puts it on the list as the No. 5 top grossing MMA event in Nevada history.
