UFC 137 recorded a live gate of $3,900,650 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Oct. 29, 2011, according to official figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission released earlier today.

The final attendance of 10,313 was a result of 8,179 tickets sold and 2,134 complimentary tickets while 409 tickets remained unsold.

In addition, the "Sin City" hotel also raked in $26,150 for the 523 patrons willing to pay for the closed-circuit viewing party, leaving 2,081 seats empty and 200 moochers there for free.

"Penn vs. Diaz" featured former Strikeforce welterweight champion Nick Diaz staking his claim to a Super Bowl title shot against Georges St. Pierre by pounding on B.J. Penn for 15-minutes strong.

But that's not all.

Cheick Kongo maintained his status as the gatekeeper of the heavyweight division by outperforming Matt Mitrione in the co-main event of the evening.

Mirko Filipovic went out on a low note, retiring from active competition after getting clobbered by Roy Nelson while Scott Jorgensen stymied the return of Jeff Curran.

But don't take my word for it.
