WEC 41: "Brown vs. Faber 2," which took place at the Arco Arena in Sacramento, Calif., on June 7, shattered company records with 13,027 in attendance for an official live gate of $818,415, according to The California State Athletic Commission (CSAC).
Those numbers far surpass the former gate and attendance record set by WEC 34 at the Arco Arena in June 2008, which tallied 12,682 attendees who paid a collective $738,855 to watch Urijah Faber choke out MMA legend, Jens Pulver.
WEC 41, with the main event of the evening showcasing a rematch between featherweight champion Mike Brown and the man who he defeated to capture the title, Faber, blew the roof off the Arco Arena after five rounds of terrific back-and-forth action.
Faber may have lost the bout, but he certainly didn't lose any respect of the hometown crowd or his peers. The number of complimentary tickets are not known at this time; however, stay tuned to MMAmania.com as that information becomes available.
