The official gate and attendance numbers, as recorded by the California State Athletic Commission, are in for UFC on Fox 1: Velasquez vs. dos Santos.

Taking place on Nov. 12 at the Honda Center in Anaheim, Calif., UFC on Fox 1 drew an official attendance of 11,607. That number includes a paid attendance of 9,864 and complimentary tickets totaling 1,743. The total stands in stark contrast to the 14,019 in attendance announced at the UFC on Fox 1 post-fight press conference.

Despite the disparity in attendance, the gate receipts total, reported as $1.1 million on fight night, was accurate. The CSAC told MMAWeekly.com on Thursday that the official gate receipts total is $1,072,187.

The total disclosed UFC on Fox 1 fighter payroll was $654,000. But let’s face it, UFC on Fox 1 was not intended to be an immediate revenue generator the way that a pay-per-view event is. UFC on Fox 1 is an investment in the promotion’s future on the Fox family of networks, plain and simple.
