"The event at the MGM Grand Garden Arena drew a respectable crowd of 11,575 for a gate of $3.7 million, but those numbers certainly belies the hype surrounding the Jon Jones vs. Daniel Cormier main event." "By contrast, UFC 168, which featured the rematch between Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva, drew 15,650 people for a gate of $6.2 million in the same MGM Grand Garden Arena." http://sports.yahoo.com/news/ufc-18...-ppv-expectations-running-075736764--mma.html Didnt imagine the gap is that big with JJ and DC much lower. All that crazy hype and animosity (which makes great promo)...all the trash talks and anticipation for months for the "biggest fight", the gates came in way below Silva v.s Weidman. Thought the arena ought to be sold out for sure or at least > Silva and Weidman.
