    UFC 116 was one of the biggest UFC ppvs of all time which involved Lesnar VS Carwin,also the most sold Heavyweight fight of all time if you don’t count ufc 100

    Anyway the gate number on wikipedia has been falsely reported for years and no one tried to edit or correct it
    It says total gate was $2,053,990 which is low
    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/UFC_116
    Actually i have seen a lot of people bring this number as a fact saying brock’s gates were low without checking real sources,all the other websites said it was $4,053,990 even the source on the wiki page

    Can someone try to edit that on Wikipedia?

    I like to think you've devoted the last ten years of your life trying to solve this riddle.

    Dammit I knew something had been bothering me for all these years...

    And here I thought it was male pattern baldness.

    Turns out it was misreported gates on old UFC events!

    What a relief.

    Nobody really started pulling big gate numbers until Conor. I remember Silva vs Chael 2 had the highest gate number for a while.
