UFC on Fuel TV, which took place at the Omaha Civic Auditorium in Omaha, Nebraska, on Feb. 15, 2012, tallied a live gate of $405,895, thanks to 6,283 fans in attendance, according to official figures from Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) released yesterday (via Yahoo! Sports).

Those numbers are down from the promotion's previous trip to Omaha for UFC Fight Night 15: "Diaz vs. Neer," back on Sept. 17, 2008, which garnered 9,103 fans for a $700,000 live gate.

UFC on Fuel TV featured a thrilling three round main event between Diego Sanchez and Jake Ellenberger. While "The Dream" was able to keep himself awake against the power-punching "Juggernaut," the hometown hero proved to be too much for the former Ultimate Fighter and took home the unanimous decision win.

Also in action, Ronny Markes and T.J. Dillashaw both picked up decision wins while Stefan Struve and Stipe Miocic each took home knockout victories. See who scored the Fight Night bonuses right here.
