    Look at it any way you want.

    The place can hold a hell of a lot more people that were there. They used a smaller seating plan for the event for a reason. That "capacity" isn't including floor seats either.

    Dynamite 2009 attendance: 45,000. There's lots of other examples.

    Hmmm but the lack of octopus, Godzilla and school girls makes me wonder if it was a joke..
    Or am I thinking about Japanese family game shows?

    The UFC is the biggest sports organization in the world, how else would they have secured such a lucrative sponsorship deal with the top athletic apparel company Reebok, NFL and NBA have been trying to get player kits for years to no avail.

    I'd say they're reading some stupid self glorifying shit the ufc wrote for them. Its not like they're saying it as a joke. And if they did joke about it, dana would cut them!

    There is arena format and stadium format. They used arena format with maximum capacity of 22.000 according to Saitama Super Arena website. And this includes floor seats.

    Reported attendance of Japanese MMA events is not to be believed. In some cases they reported bigger attendance than the actual record attendance.

    I get what you're saying. I've been in the place several times, at different capacities.

    The smallest being Nelson vs. Hunt, where only the lower bowl was used, the place looked tiny. It looked full, soI guess that was a sell out too.

    The place holds well over 40,000 people by the way. Easily.

    More like 114.

    What is the average rating for UFC Fight Night? 1 million on a good night?

    If only the UFC would actually put one of their bigger events on network television for once. They are so stingy.
