    Correct though, he could be lying, but this event generated a lot more fan interest than any other non-UFC event I know of
    I believe the comp tickets were part of the $2 million gate, because he said that they spent the $500k on tickets.

    Claudale, I'm not trying to argue with you, simply pointing out that we were told it was a sold out, jam packed Honda center, when in fact, the CSAC tells us thouusands of tickets went unsold. Not sure where we disagree.

    I hope Affliction did tremendous numbers, I bought the show, but just because the promoter says we did well over 100k buys but I wont tell you how much it is, doesn't mean they did even over 40k buys. The word on the street is they didn't do so hot. I hope the street is wrong. We may never know because it would be mebarrassing to them to let the cat out of the sack (like you Americans say).

    Perhaps.

    We have gotten misinformation. the thread you started stated that Arlovski got $750g including win bonus; I don't think that's right - although the CSAC release is ambiguous, if think you have to add the two together ($1m) to get to the total they disclused.

    I thought you weren't going to pay attention to this event? Eyes were glued to one of your big screen TVs showing the UFC fight?

    I didn't hear that, but I'll take your word they said it. Lots of events, including the UFC, have been accused of making that same comment.

    Didn't know rumors existed saying it didn't do so well. I won't hang my hat on the presidents comment (never hang it on anything Dana says either) but this interest in these fights were exceptional.

    Very few MMA fans who care enough about MMA to post on the internet about it have not seen it. The same can not be said about the other non-UFC events.

    I've been hearing either 100K+ or 37K. I hope it's 100K. They already did well at gate and if they do well on PPV.. that means they will be around for a while.. their viral marketing worked out well.

    Hope the figures are true, because if so, those are very solid numbers to start some momentum.

    I'm very skeptical of any references to sellouts after attending that IFL event in NJ last year. I heard several mentions of it being a soldout show - yet they didn't use the 2nd tier at all, and there were lots of empty seats.

    Meltzer says it's between 50,000 and 85,000
