DALLAS – Strikeforce's first-ever event in Dallas drew a reported 7,639 attendees for a $543,060 live gate. |
MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com) learned of the figures at the post-event press conference for Saturday night's "Strikeforce: Overeem vs. Werdum" event, which took place at American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker revealed the results following the event.
The numbers represent an average of $71.09 in revenue per ticket issues. The number of complimentary tickets issued was not revealed.
By comparison, Strikeforce's Lone Star State debut, "Strikeforce: Houston," which took place in August 2010 at Houston's Toyota Center, drew a reported 8,635 attendees. The gate for that event was not revealed.
Strikeforce's sister company, the Ultimate Fighting Championship, has also hosted one event at American Airlines Center. That card, "UFC 103: Franklin vs. Belfort," scored a reported 17,428 attendees for a $2.4 million gate.
I guarantee you atleast half of that goes to their salaries.
There are many paths to freedom....not all are peaceful.
