How did the show do?
According to mmajunkie.com, the Indiana Gaming Commission's athletic division have confirmed that UFC Fight Night 27 did 6,417 attendees for a gate of $355,290. While the number of "comp" or free tickets was not revealed, the figures represent an average revenue of $55.37 per ticket issued.
When asked about the gate and if there was any concern over it, Dana White stated the following…
"You're not going to roll in on a Wednesday night and do $2.5 million gates. You're just not going to do that, and especially with a 'Fight Night.' That's a big number in a small market, and if you look at historically what we do on 'Fight Nights,' it's on par. … We'll make Wednesdays work, and we'll figure out the gate."
