    The UFC were reporting the they sold out the venue, but others are reporting it drew

    17,587, which is about 93% of the Caesars capacity of 19,000.
    Average Ticket Price was $115.00


    I'd say that's very good considering I don't know the last time the UFC came to the Murder Mitten. Hell, they barely come to the upper Midwest at all.

    I wonder what drew such a large crowd? The card was great on paper, but they really showed up for this event.

    They all turned up to get 1 step closer to a living legend and Detroit's own.

    Is there anything going on at the Palace anymore? No more Pistons, no more UFC...

    Nothing sports wise at this time

    Random concerts and other shit still go on i believe

    Will likely join the Silverdome in a pile of rubble in the years to come

    There were empty single seats all along the lower bowl and entire sections empty up top


    EDIT: a lot of Canadians went over for the card too, doesn't hurt when Canada only gets so many cards

    I wanted to go, but the medium seats were $250, and you were still too far away to see without just looking at the scoreboard. I still considered it because the UFC doesn't travel much (last time in MI was 2010), but my friends balked at the prices.

    At pretty much any UFC event you are watching the scoreboards, MMA is not the best viewing experience.

    I was like 15 rows up and my tickets were $125 or so, which IMO is not bad at all. The new arena was also very fresh.

    In other sports you atleast can understand what's going on while watchin the actual thing. Can't see myself going to an MMA event without great tickets

    What else is there to do in Detroit other than to enjoy some violence?

    Yeah I noticed that too and laughed a bit at the post fight press conference when Dana did his 'the gate was.... it was sold out.....' stuff.
