The Feb. 6 UFC 109 pay-per-view took in a gate of $2,273,000 from the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to official figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released today.

The final tally was a result of 7,432 tickets sold. Those figures do not include the 3,321 comped tickets or the 84 unsold tickets.

The UFC dished out $944,000 in fighter salaries for the live event and another $240,000 in additional bonus money for the four participants who delivered outstanding performances.

"Relentless" featured a rare submission win from former heavy and light heavyweight champion Randy Couture as "The Natural" choked out Mark Coleman in the main event. "The Hammer" was released from the promotion shortly thereafter.

185-pound stalwart Chael Sonnen inched his way closer to a future title shot with a dominating unanimous decision win over the ultra tough Nate Marquardt.
