    I've noticed a few times during the show that whenever they zoom out to show the whole venue there's a lot of empty seats. Like whole blocks of seats look empty.

    Were ticket sales not very good, or did everyone just go to the toilet?

    I noticed that but when the prelims were just getting started. Even that seemed odd to me for Brasil.

    They use green background so they can generate digital crowd.

    Definitely a lot of seats unfilled. Not too surprising for a card like this.

    empty seats are valid, ufc can't sell on its name alone anymore

    Not surprising considering:

    1. Cheapest ticket was $200
    2. nearly a third of Sao Paulo population has moved to the beach locations for the summer getaways

    It was widely reported that ticket sales were not so great for event. It's not surprising either. This card is shit.

    Like somebody said on the roundtable podcast yesterday; without the main event, this would be a Jungle Fight card.
