The UFC 125 pay-per-view took in a gate of $2,174,780 on Jan. 1 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, according to official figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released earlier today.

The final attendance of 12,874 was a result of 6,978 tickets sold and 5,896 comped tickets.

A hefty 1,077 tickets remained unsold.

"Resolution" featured a main event between Frankie Edgar and Gray Maynard, who battled to a five round draw for the UFC lightweight title. Middleweight stalwart Brian Stann answered the call of power-punching Chris Leben in the night's co-main event, stopping "The Crippler" via technical knockout (strikes) in the opening frame.

The UFC dished out $872,000 in fighter salaries for the live event and another $240,000 in additional bonus money to the four participants who delivered outstanding performances.
