The numbers are in for UFC 156 and according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission, the world's largest mixed martial arts promotion did just fine. .
UFC 156: "Aldo vs Edgar," which took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Feb. 2, 2013, tallied a live gate of $2,437,150, according to official figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released today.
The final attendance of 10,275 was the result of 7,136 tickets sold and 3,139 complimentary tickets, while 548 seats remained empty.
The UFC 156 main event saw former lightweight Champion Frankie Edgar drop a decision to current featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who dominated the early portion of the fight before allowing "The Answer" to come on strong late.
It was a typical Frankie Edgar-type of fight.
The co-headlining attraction saw Rashad Evans get upset by Antonio Rogerio Nogueira in a largely forgettable affair that never really seemed to get going while everyone was raving about the finish to the heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Antonio Silva, which saw "Bigfoot" knock "The Reem" into another dimension with a huge flurry of punches..
