The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 17 Finale, which took place at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, on April 13, 2013, tallied a live gate of $569,075, according to official figures from the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) released today.

The final attendance of 5,918 was the result of 5,382 tickets sold and 536 complimentary tickets, while 223 seats remained empty.

TUF 17 Finale main event featured former World Extreme Cagefighting (WEC) posterboy, Urijah Faber, continuing his assault on top Bantamweight contenders, forcing Scott Jorgensen to tapout to a rear-naked choke in the fourth round of their 135-pound battle.

Always a groomsman, never the groom.

Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Kelvin Gastelum became TUF 17's Middleweight winner, outworking Uriah Hall en route to a close, and perhaps controversial, upset split decision victory.
