UFC 98 Live Gate Nets Over 3 Million

UFC 98, which hosted another changing of the light heavyweight guard, was another financial success, according to preliminary numbers given by UFC president Dana White after the event.

12,606 fans attended the event for $3.26 million in live gate revenue.

Final numbers will be released by the Nevada State Athletic Commission this week.

If White’s figures hold, it will be the twelfth highest MMA gate in the state’s history.
