UFC 132 recorded a gate of $2,304,500 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on July 2, 2011, according to official figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released earlier today.
The final attendance of 13,109 was a result of 8,103 tickets sold and 5,006 complimentary tickets. A mere 787 tickets went unsold.
Perhaps that had something to do with the organization struggling to push its product for the annual Independence Day weekend event.
Cruz was successful in his defense of his title, earning a unanimous decision win after five grueling rounds against his arch nemesis, "The California Kid."
The UFC forked over a considerable $1,277,000 in fighter salaries for the live event and another $300,000 in additional bonus money for the four participants who delivered outstanding performances.
