Following UFC 137 in Las Vegas on Saturday night, UFC president Dana White announced the attendance and gate numbers for the show.
10,313 fans showed up at the Mandalay Bay Event Center to witness Nick Diaz vs. B.J. Penn in the main event.
The fans in attendance may have watched two legends in the sport retire. Both Penn and former Pride Grand Prix champion Mirko “Cro Cop” Filipovic made statements that Saturday night was their last time in the Octagon.
The gate for the Las Vegas event totaled $3.9 million.
