UFC 183: Silva vs. Diaz pulled in strong numbers in regard to both attendance and the live gate receipts.
The event, which took place Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, was strong enough to become one of the top ten events in Nevada’s MMA history. UFC 183 pulled in an announced attendance of 13,114, amounting to a live gate of $4.5 million.
Nevada records its top draws in terms of gate amount. Pulling in $4.5 million puts UFC 183 squarely at No. 9 on the state’s list of Top MMA Gates, just below UFC 91, which featured Brock Lesnar vs. Randy Couture.
